Description

Hughes is seen as a complex, multi-faceted writer, a great poet in the tradition of English nature poetry, who also sought inspiration from international sources, ancient and modern. His lifelong concern for language and his use of mythology and history are explored, while his poetic achievements are examined in context, together with his writing for children and his experiments with forms of theatre.
