Ted Hughes (1930-98) produced more than forty books of poetry, prose, drama, translation, and children's literature, including, in his last decade, Shakespeare and the Goddess of Complete Being, Tales from Ovid, and Birthday Letters.
"[These] unusual examples of [Hughes's] work . . . do more to enlarge our understanding of him than any recapitulation of his more well-thumbed output." --PHOEBE PETTINGELL, The New Leader
