I only think, if that is the name for this vertiginous panic as of hornets smoked out of their nests, once a certain degree of terror has been exceeded

I spent an hour looking for my Hopkins copy. I can't find it. I'm not sure I ever even owned it. I will also probably get the Mariani bio.

Ah it#s all going to shit


Lowell is a joy, so often, even when he's obstinate and wrong.

Am just a few pages into Ted Hughes' Birthday Letters and am enjoying it greatly. More than I did Crow. Anyone here interested in his stuff?

BL is extremely atypical Hughes. The Crow is more typical of most of his work, especially the work that made him famous and great (and important). I like BL, too, but it's different.

I have been reading Ted Hughes' Gaudete,
an odd and poetically rich long work, Marcel

I recommend it

I love Hughes, but i don't read much poetry just now (which means several years)

I'm not a huge reader of his poetry, though I have read Crow and some other selected Hughes. This one is strongly linked to autobiographical narrative, which places it in a strange, mournful yet somehow lyrical realm. Some real gems of language, though.
