Ted Hughes – Birthday Letters | Review

Title: Birthday Letters

Author: Ted Hughes

Type: Poetry

Page Count: 198

Rating: 3.75/5

I’ve always been more of a Plath fan than a Hughes fan, but that made this interesting because the poems were pretty much all about Plath and his relationship with her, so there was quite a lot there for me to enjoy.

The fact is, I don’t much like Hughes as a person, but as a poet, it’s hard to knock him. In fact, this did a lot to make me change my mind about him, at least a little bit. I’ve read a few other bits and pieces by Ted Hughes here and there, but this did at least made me want to read some more of his stuff.

It’s not exactly my type of poetry, but it is still pretty close and it’s definitely food for thought, and definitely worth reading. If nothing else, it was interesting to see how Hughes’ work has influenced some of the other poets that I like. He has a certain flair and a way with words that makes it a pleasure to read his stuff, at least here. Just maybe not always.
