Collected poems by Ted Hughes( Book )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: From the astonishing debut Hawk in the Rain (1957) to Birthday Letters (1998), Ted Hughes was one of postwar literature's truly prodigious poets. This remarkable volume gathers all of his work, from his earliest poems (published only in journals) through the ground-breaking volumes Crow (1970), Gaudete(1977), and Tales from Ovid (1997). It includes poems Hughes composed for fine-press printers, poems he wrote as England's Poet Laureate, and those children's poems that he meant for adults as well. This omnium gatherum of Hughes's work is animated throughout by the voice that, as Seamus Heaney remarked, was simply "longer and deeper and rougher" than that of his contemporaries

They include the tragedy, Echo and Narcissus, describing Narcissus' descent into madness as "Again and again he kissed / The lips that seemed to be rising to kiss his / But dissolved, as he touched them / Into a soft splash and a shiver of ripples."
The hawk in the rain by Ted Hughes( Book )

93 editions published between 1957 and 2019 in English and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This multi-award winning collection, the first from Ted Hughes, has at its heart the mixture of beauty and violence in the natural world. Dedicated to Sylvia Plath, Hawk in the Rain is a stunning collection of poems on the themes of competition and the struggle for survival. Hughes would go on to become Britain's Poet Laureate in 1984 until his death in 1998. Including many of Hughes' best-known poems, such as 'The Jaguar', 'The Thought-Fox' and 'Wind' - now stapes of British poetry anthologies - Hawk in the Rain is the foundation of Hughes' reputation as one of the twentieth-century's greatest poets
Wolfwatching by Ted Hughes( Book )

32 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Orestia--Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides--depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority"--Jacket

Shakespeare and the goddess of complete being by Ted Hughes( Book )

28 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this momentous adventure in criticism, one of the leading poets writing in English argues that our profound response to Shakespeare's great late plays is prompted by a mythic, symbolic structure that inheres in each of them, and indeed binds the entire Shakespearean corpus into one huge, complex, ever-evolving work. Ted Hughes sees Shakespeare's early poems Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece as embodying two great myths of the archaic world, that of the hero who rejects the love of the Goddess and is killed in revenge by a boar; and that of the king, or god, whose crime is rape and whose punishment is banishment. These two complexes merge as Shakespeare's work develops into what Hughes calls the Tragic Equation, a flexible formula through which the poet was able to tap into the innate power of these myths to enliven his own imagination - and through him the imagination of Elizabethan England, in which the conflicts between Catholicism and Protestantism in the "living myth" of the English Reformation never lay far from the bloody surface of events. With his characteristic mixture of erudition and immediacy, Ted Hughes traces this idea in a close reading of Shakespeare's entire work. This text originally grew out of correspondence with dramatists, and anyone for whom intimate attention to the plays is important - scholar, student, actor, or common reader - will profit greatly from Hughes's loving, intensive, engrossing, and radical analysis of the greatest writing in the language
