Ted Hughes

(2001)
The Life of a Poet
A non fiction book by

 
 
"[The] biography that needed to be written, an attempt to set the record straight and clear the air." - The New York Times Book Review

Although Ted Hughes ended his days as England's beloved poet laureate, his life was dogged by tragedy and controversy. He never entirely recovered from the suicide of his wife Sylvia Plath in 1963, for which many have held his adultery responsible. In this insightful biography, the first written since Hughes's death, Elaine Feinstein explores an altogether more complex situation, throwing new light on his relationship with his lover Assia Wevill, who later killed herself along with their young daughter. 12 b/w photographs.
