Ted Hughes Quotes (Author of Birthday Letters)
All My Poems Are Love Poems: When Two Poets Fall in Love
Ted Hughes remains one of the most divisive English poets of the second half of the twentieth century, and not just because of the controversy surrounding his marriage to Sylvia Plath. Where should the poetry fan begin when seeking to explore his work? The speaker of this poem looks down at a dead pig and remarks how utterly dead it is, and contrasts its now deadened and lifeless state with the warm, active creature that is the living pig. Here is another great Hughes poem about a bird of prey, in the same tradition as his Crow sequence of poems. The hawk is the speaker of this poem, declaring his dominion over the world and asserting that just as he has always been in charge, so he will remain the mighty creature he is, the pinnacle of Creation.
Born August 17th, in Mytholmroyd, Yorkshire, his family moved to Mexborough when he was seven to run a newspaper and tobacco shop.

CROW - written and read by Ted Hughes
The most notorious, politicized and doomed literary couple in history. Their union was a collaboration of the haunting past, accurate premonitions of the future and a radioactive, almost occult intensity; the passion between them was so fierce and fast-pace they married the same year. After four years of free-roaming they settled in London to have their first child. Over the next few years of their marriage Plath published her first collection, finished her novel, suffered a miscarriage and went on holiday with Hughes to recover, returning home to give birth to their second child. Depression faded her into abstraction, she was anxious and vulnerable, governed by nerves, and now without hesitation in public.
