"How was Ted Hughes's poetry affected by the life and death of Sylvia Plath? What is the importance of his early life on the Yorkshire moors with his elder brother, a life that he called Paradise? Why did he not complete the 'saga' of Crow? What is the mysterious 'single adventure' of Wodwo? How did Hughes work with collaborators such as Peter Brook, Fay Godwin and Leonard Baskin? How important was his work as children's writer and translator? What was he trying to do as Poet Laureate? How did writing Birthday Letters affect his attitude to his life and career? Neil Roberts attempts to answer these and many other questions by a close study of Hughes's poetic development and reference to unpublished letters and drafts.

But it may also involve a genuine engagement with alien cultures and ways of feeling. This study argues that what is dangerous and scandalous about these texts is testimony to Lawrence's struggle to escape from familiar cultural paradigms."--Jacket
Meredith and the novel by Neil Roberts( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neil Roberts' book, the first full-length study of Meredith's work for ten years, and the first to approach the novels in the light of modern literary theory, examines them from a Bakhtinian perspective, and shows with reference to numerous contemporary texts - artistic, polemical and personal - that the Meredithian novel is, in Bakhtin's words, a 'social dialogue among languages' that engages profoundly with the ideological discourses of its time, above all the discourses of gender. Meredith emerges as one of the most intriguingly subtle radical voices of the age, and a still not fully-discovered precursor of the modernist novel
Narrative and voice in postwar poetry by Neil Roberts( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poetry in English since the Second World War has produced a number of highly original narrative works, as diverse as Derek Walcott's Omeros, Ted Hughes' Gaudete and Anne Stevenson's Correspondences. At the same time, poetry in general has been permeated by narrative features, particularly those linguistic characteristics that Mikhail Bakhtin considered peculiar to the novel, and which he termed ""dialogic"". This book examines the narrative and dialogic elements in the work of a range of poets from Britain, America, Ireland, Australia and the Caribbean, including poetry from the immediate post
Sons and lovers : the biography of a novel by Neil Roberts( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawrence's autobiographical novel, Sons and Lovers, was written in four drafts between August 1910 and November 1912. During that period Lawrence's mother died, he broke for the final time with Jessie Chambers (the original of Miriam), had an afar with Alice Dax (the main model for Clara), had a year-long engagement to Louie Burrows, nearly died of pneumonia, gave up teaching, met Frieda Weekley who was to be his wife and life-companion, and lived abroad with her in Germany and Italy. When he began Sons and Lovers he was a schoolteacher in Croydon, South London, writing after work in the evenings; when he completed it, he was a full-time professional writer living with Frieda on the shores of Lake Garda. The writing of the novel and the life on which is was based were closely intertwined. In many ways, the book is the result of dialogues with Jessie and Frieda. Jessie was devastated by the outcome, which she considered a slander and a betrayal. But Lawrence incorporated her answering voice, as well as Frieda's, in the text. This book combines biography and textual scholarship to bring to life the dramatic story of the writing of Sons and Lovers
A companion to twentieth-century poetry( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the twentieth century more people spoke English and more people wrote poetry than in the whole of previous history, and this Companion strives to make sense of this crowded poetical era. The original contributions by leading international scholars and practising poets were written as the contributors adjusted to the idea that the possibilities of twentieth-century poetry were exhausted and finite. However, the volume also looks forward to the poetry and readings that the new century will bring. The Companion embraces the extraordinary development of poetry over the century in twenty English-speaking countries; a century which began with a bipolar transatlantic connection in modernism and ended with the decentred heterogeneity of post-colonialism. Representation of the 'canonical' and the 'marginal' is therefore balanced, including the full integration of women poets and feminist approaches and the in-depth treatment of post-colonial poets from various national traditions. Discussion of context, intertextualities and formal approaches illustrates the increasing self-consciousness and self-reflexivity of the period, whilst a 'Readings' section offers new readings of key selected texts. The volume as a whole offers critical and contextual coverage of the full range of English-language poetry in the last century

Ted Hughes, nature and culture( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourteen contributors to this new collection of essays begin with Ted Hughes?s proposition that?every child is nature?s chance to correct culture?s error.? Established Hughes scholars alongside new voices draw on a range of approaches to explore the intricate relationships between the natural world and cultural environments? political, as well as geographical? which his work unsettles. Combining close readings of his encounters with animals and places, and explorations of the poets who influenced him, these essays reveal Ted Hughes as a writer we still urgently need. Hughes helps us manage, in his words,?the powers of the inner world and the stubborn conditions of the other world, under which ordinary men and women have to live?

Ted Hughes by Terry Gifford( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This innovative casebook introduces readers to wide-ranging critical dialogue about the work of Ted Hughes, one of the most popular and influential British poets of the twentieth century. In twelve new essays, international authorities on Hughes examine and debate his work, shedding new light on familiar texts. Split into two parts, the first half of this book examines Hughes's work through cultural contexts, such as postmodernism and the carnivalesque, while the second part uses literary theories including postcolonialism, ecocriticism and trauma theory to interpret his poetry. Providing fresh inspiration and insights into the various diverse ways in which Hughes's writing can be interpreted, this volume is an ideal introduction to both literary theory and the work of Ted Hughes for literature students and scholars alike. -- from back cover
