A Great Modern Poet.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collected Poems of Ted Hughes (Paperback)
I was looking for a particular quote from Ted Hughes and had been unable to find it until I got this complete collection of his work. It still took me some time to find it (A Motorbike) but in the process of searching I came to realise what an enormous output of work this man had done.
He was a tough northener of my time and I recognise his stories, his poems - TWO HORSES for instance yet he was happy to live and write about the black towns of Yorkshire and Lancashire. His work was like his life, full of energy, love and affection for those in trouble. A Poet Laureat of very great distinction and a deserved recipient of the Order of Merit.
