This review is from: Collected Poems of Ted Hughes (Kindle Edition)
Hughes is certainly in control of language - there's never any question of it being in control of him. The poems are willful and beautifully wrought.
nonetheless, their glorification of the macho and notion of an endlessly cruel nature raises all sorts of ethical issues.
I admire this poetry immensely but I don't like it.
