Product description


"In a series of chapters built around poems by a number of writers including himself . . . [Hughes] explores, colourfully and intensively, themes such as 'Capturing Animals, ' 'Wind and Weather, ' and 'Writing about People.' The purpose throughout is to lead on, via a discussion of the poems (which he does with riveting skill), to some direct encouragement to the [students] to think and write for themselves. He makes the whole venture seem enjoyable, and somehow urgent."--"The Times Literary Supplement"

Hughes served as Poet Laureate to Queen Elizabeth II from 1984 until his death in 1998.
