An extensive selection of the late Laureate's major poems, read in his inimitable style.
Ted Hughes, one of England's foremost poets, and Poet Laureate since 1984, is also a haunting reader of his own work.
On this recording he reads his own choice of more than fifty poems from the first twenty years of a literary career that began with the publication of 'Hawk in the Rain' in 1957.
In particular, the programme includes a generous selection from two of his most powerful and distinctive works: 'Wodwo' (1967) and 'Crow' (1970).
