Ted Hughes Alternative Horizons
Taylor & Francis | 2005 | ISBN: 9026519737 | Pages: 172 | PDF | 1.74 MB
The first collection of essays to be published since Ted Hughes' death, this volume gathers contributions from most major international Hughes scholars. The collection reflects some well-trodden paths of Hughes criticism, however, it also revisits critical discourse on his work, acknowledging that it is no longer possible to study Hughes without reference to Sylvia Plath. The collection also challenges a critical reception that has prided itself on being the mouthpiece of the poet's own ideological discourse.
