Overview

Ted Hughes' writings are a search for a new kind of responsible adulthood adequate for the unprecedented conditions of life in this era. This book examines each of his major works together with some important previously unpublished or uncollected stories and plays, drawing out the main shifts in his poetic strategies and relating them to his developing sense of what the search for a new maturity entails. He is linked with a variety of thinkers and literary figures, including, for the first time, Martin Heidegger. The poet emerging from this commentary is quite unlike the pessimistic and erratic celebrator of violence Hughes has sometimes been taken for.
