River from the Author: Ted Hughes. First published in 1983, River celebrates fluvial landscapes, their creatures and their regenerative powers. Inspired by Hughes's love of fishing and by his environmental activism, the poems are a deftly and passionately attentive chronicle of change over the course of the seasons. West Country rivers predominate ('The West Dart' and 'Torridge'), but other poems imagine or recall Japanese rivers or Celtic rivers, and 'The Gulkana' explores an ancient Alaskan watercourse. At its core the sequence rehearses, in various settings, from winter to winter, the life-cycle of the salmon. All this, too, is stitched into the torn richness, The epic poise That holds him so steady in his wounds, so loyal to his doom, so patient In the machinery of heaven. from 'October Salmon'

Ted Hughes from the Author: Joanny Moulin. This is the first collection of essays to be published since the poet's death. Continuing a tradition of more than thirty years of Ted Hughes studies, it gathers contributions by most of the major international Hughes scholars, voicing their critical preoccupations at the turn of the century. Over the years, academic criticism on the poetry of Ted Hughes has established some well-trodden paths, which this collection still strongly reflects, however, the productions of the latter Hughes, in poetry as well as in criticism, demand a revisiting of the critical discourse on his work. The biographical dimension, for instance, has gradually gathered momentum, and it is no longer possible to study the work of Ted Hughes without due reference to the life and work of Sylvia Plath. This book is, nonetheless, also motivated by the wish to bring some fresh blood to the Hughes studies by politely rocking the boat of a rather comfortably established critical reception that has prided itself on being the mouthpiece of the poet's own ideological discourse. For this reason, some of the chapters in this collection belong to a continental European tradition that is resolutely foreign to the former partisanships. For all that, Ted Hughes: Alternative Horizons suggests that steering clear of the polemical ruts dug by fans and detractors alike can only benefit the future of scholarly studies devoted to a great poet.

Proving Poetry Ted Hughes And Philip Larkin Now from the Author: Ryan Hibbett. This dissertation situates the work of two major British writers at the intersection of competing cultural fields. Traditionally locked in an antithetical binary, Ted Hughes and Philip Larkin have undergone similar reception histories of scandal and subsequent "rescuing," in which their existence as popular icons and cultural signifiers threatens their identities as poets and the autonomy of their work. This dissertation examines the exchanges between poetic texts and other genres, disciplines, and cultural practices, paying special attention to how the poetry negotiates an increasingly interdependent relationship (i.e. an "economics of linguistic capital") between "high art" and popular culture. This approach allows one to get beyond the traditional understanding of Larkin and Hughes as polar opposites and see them instead as writers produced by, and producing within, a shared moment of cultural anxiety, in which the elusive and ever-thinning line between genuine artistic production and literary posturing is rigorously tended to. This dissertation therefore seeks out the strategies by which poetry attempts to prove itself authentic as a site of knowledge and identity production. Coupling Foucault's approach to authorship as a discursive function with Bourdieu's social critique of aesthetic judgment, this dissertation addresses the processes of categorization to which Hughes and Larkin are bound, as well as the role such classifications play in the "game" of social distinction.
