Ted Hughes

Ted Hughes (2014)

My portrait of ‘Uncle Ted’, probably my favourite poet. No-one else had written like him before, and no-one has since. A bit much for some people, I know, all that blood and mud and sex and death but, as The Church of the Sub-Genius suggest, too much is always better than not enough.

I recommend the BBC’s Ted Hughes: Stronger Than Death documentary, which does the best job I’ve seen of exploring the man’s formative experiences and how it affected his work.
