The Art of Ted Hughes

£14.99

Product description

This first edition book is in good condition. The dust jacket gas a tear along one edge, and some wear, but it is otherwise clean and intact, and has not been price clipped. There is very slight discolouring on the end papers. Otherwise, internally it is clean, tight and unmarked.

Dr Sagar believes that when we see Ted Hughes work as a whole, with each book a stage in a psychic adventure involving new stylistic challenge. In this study of Ted Hughes, Dr Sagar gives most of his attention to individual poems, their meaning and coherence, their relation to each other and to the poetic tradition, their sources and background (often in mythology and folklore), and their relevance to living in our time. He began reading Hughes in 1957 when 'The Hawk in the Ruin' appeared, and has followed his development closely ever since: here, with benefit of hindsight, he attempts to retrace that journey. A chapter is devoted to each major work.
