Description
"Few poets have acquired so many and such diverse literary personae during their careers as Ted Hughes. There's the raw Yorkshire firebrand who burst onto the English literary scene in the late 1950s, writing poems with a visceral intensity and daring sense of invention. There's the husband of Sylvia Plath, making him part of what today might be called a literary 'power couple.' Later, Hughes became a tormented caricature of himself, accused by feminist critics of pushing his talented wife over the emotional brink—and then, after her suicide, censoring her journals with an eye toward safeguarding his own reputation. But in Britain, where he was the surprise choice for Poet Laureate in 1984—a post in which he served until his death in 1998—he is regarded as a mystical poet of the natural world, one of the greatest the 20th century produced.... Hughes produced more than 40 books during his career, many devoted to poets from diverse cultural sources. Selected Translations amply demonstrates the poet's deep intellectual curiosity, ranging from ancient times (Ovid, Aeschylus, Euripides) through the modern era (Eluard, Lorca, Pilinszky). His were among the first English versions of the great Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai and helped introduce him to the West.... [This collection] may even coax readers into reacquainting themselves with a poet Seamus Heaney eulogized as 'a guardian spirit of the land and language'."—Washington Post
