Ted Hughes News

On 10 May 2012, readers of Ted Hughes (and Sylvia Plath) should be on the lookout for Keith Sagar's Poet and Critic: The Letters of Ted Hughes and Keith Sagar (published by The British Library Publishing Division). The book will weigh in at 320 pages, and topics discussed in the correspondence include Hughes's travels, hunting, religion, education and his relationship with Sylvia Plath. Never published before in their entirety, this collection provides a significant new perspective on Hughes's life and work.

Look for the book available in America in June.

Purchase Poet and Critic from the British Library!

Later in the year, Ted Hughes's brother, Gerald, will publish a book about his brother. More details as they are made available.

Roy Davids has published via Earth-Moon: Information about Ted Hughes, a detailed finding aid of the Ted Hughes materials at the British Library. A massive undertaking and an enviable product.

Ann Skea has published recently "Ted Hughes and Small Press Publications". This will be of interest to many of us, particularly those books by Sylvia Plath done by the Rainbow Press in the 1970s.

I'm reading the Letters of Ted Hughes right now, so I can't wait to continue with Sagar's! It never ceases to amaze me how many Plath scholars have never read Hughes--her mentor in everything and the one who knew her best.

I am looking forward to this book too, so long since I read journals and letters, must do that again.
