Letters of Ted Hughes by Ted Hughes

Book Description

At the outset of his career Ted Hughes described letter-writing as 'excellent training for conversation with the world', and he was to become a prolific master of this art which combines writing and talking. This selection begins when Hughes was seventeen, and documents the course of a life at once resolutely private but intensely attuned to other lives (including a readership comprising both adults and children); a life pared down to essentials and yet eventful, peripatetic, at times publicly controversial.

Ted Hughes Bestiary by Ted Hughes Ted Hughes Bestiary, Hardback (September 2014)

Originally the medieval bestiary or book of animals set out to establish safe distinctions - between them and us - but Ted Hughes' poetry works always in a contrary direction: showing what man and beast have in common, the reservoir from which we all draw. This book deals with his work.

Iron Man by Ted Hughes Iron Man, Paperback (November 2013)

Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction by the Iron Man and set a trap for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world.

By Heart by Ted Hughes By Heart, Paperback (March 2012)

What has happened to the lost art of memorising poetry? Why do we no longer feel that it is necessary to know the most enduring, beautiful poems in the English language 'by heart'? This title explains how we can overcome the problem by using a memory system that becomes easier the more frequently it is practised.

Iron Giant by Ted Hughes Iron Giant, Hardback (September 2011)
