Book description

Ted Hughes wrote in a wide range of modes which were informed by an even wider range of contexts to which his lifetime's reading, interests and experience gave him access. The achievement of Ted Hughes as one of the major poets of the twentieth century is complimented by his growing reputation as a writer of letters, plays, literary criticism and translations. In addition, Hughes made important contributions to education, literary history, emergent environmentalism and debates about life writing. Ted Hughes in Context brings together thirty-four contributors who inform new readings of the works, and conceptualize Hughes's work within long-standing critical traditions while acknowledging a new awareness of his future importance. This collection offers consideration not only of the most important aspects of Hughes's work, but also the most neglected.

Reviews

'The variety, depth and scope of the essays in Ted Hughes in Context clearly demonstrate the Hughes was a master builder whose work, like that of the skilled and knowledgeable creators of the great gothic cathedrals, inspires the imagination. … this book provides excellent, informed, contextually organised resources for scholars and others interested in Hughes’s work.'

Ann Skea Source: Ted Hughes Society Journal

'As a mapping of the range of Hughes's work and influence, it is invaluable.'

Andrew Forster Source: The Times Literary Supplement
