then you know that these books are extremely useful to have around.
Most of them, however, you probably won't be tempted to read
straight through, like a novel...That is, unless you buy this one!
Hughes is one of the major British poets of the 20th century whose
literary reputation continues to grow after his death. This book
brings you fascinatingly up to date with the critical consensus
on the importance of his work, while not ignoring the controversies
of his life. I even enjoyed reading the essays that looked like they
might be a bit "dry" in style. The chapter on "Hughes and Feminism"
was especially well-done -- a long-deferred look at Hughes from a
"sympathetic" feminist perspective. And Jonathan Bate's "Hughes on
Shakespeare" was compelling enough to make me look forward to his
biography of Hughes. This book is a must for anyone who wants to
appreciate Hughes's unique standing in modern British poetry.
