    1. "I, too, opened my mouth to praise--But a silence wedged my gullet."Like an obsidian dagger, dry, jag-edged,A silent lump of volcanic glass,"The screamVomited itself."-Ted Hughes, from Cave Birds, published 1975Hughes's poems remind me of his friend Seamus Heaney's. Both Hughes and Heaney favored a harsh-sounding, monosyllable-dense, Anglo-Saxon-derived vocabulary, shunning the urban sophistication of Latinate polysyllables. Both Hughes and Heaney traced their spiritual lineage back to the Vikin [...]


    2. So, gasping with joy, with cries of wondermentLike two gods of mudSprawling in the dirt, but with infinite careThey bring each other to perfection. —Bride and Groom Lie Hidden for Three Days, Ted Hughes


    3. So I started this collection of poetry by Hughes at least six months ago. I never dedicatedly read it but that was also kinda the point. Mainly just kept in my backpack or next to the bed as something to read when on the bus or if I couldn't sleep. That being said, I fell hard for Hughes. It has been less that 10 years since he passed and I am not entirely sure how much of his work will be canonized. In addition, he often gets overshadowed, at least in the States, by his marriage to Sylvia Plath [...]


    4. Lovesong by Ted HughesHe loved her and she loved himHis kisses sucked out her whole past and future or tried toHe had no other appetiteShe bit him she gnawed him she suckedShe wanted him complete inside herSafe and Sure forever and everTheir little cries fluttered into the curtainsHer eyes wanted nothing to get awayHer looks nailed down his hands his wrists his elbowsHe gripped her hard so that lifeShould not drag her from that momentHe wanted all future to ceaseHe wanted to topple with his arms [...]


    5. So sublime!!!He loved her and she loved himHis kisses sucked out her whole past and future or tried toHe had no other appetiteShe bit him she gnawed him she suckedShe wanted him complete inside herSafe and Sure forever and everTheir little cries fluttered into the curtainsHer eyes wanted nothing to get awayHer looks nailed down his hands his wrists his elbowsHe gripped her hard so that lifeShould not drag her from that momentHe wanted all future to ceaseHe wanted to topple with his arms round he [...]


    6. ¡Aleluya! Me ha costado lo mío terminar este libro, varios meses de hecho (y es que leer poesía en cualquier idioma, sin ayuda de la traducción acompasada, es una tarea bastante hardcore). Como casi todo hijo de vecino, llegué a Ted Hughes de la mano de su primera esposa, Sylvia Plath. Y como a casi todo hijo de vecino, me sorprende que siendo poetas tan diferentes acabaran juntos. De Plath dicen sus detractores que bordea la histeria; Hughes no puede ser más circunspecto, equilibrado y al [...]


    7. Highly recommended for nature lovers. On the one hand, I loved that each poem has so much complexity; I read this for school and we could easily talk for an hour in English class about just one poem. Sometimes, though, I didn't like the fact that you had to really dig deep to find meaning in some of these poems. It was just too convoluted for my taste at times. But I will say that it was very satisfying to discover different hidden patterns and meanings in the poetry. It really helped to discuss [...]


    8. I came to Ted Hughes' selected poems after reading his collected letters and his "Birthday Letters", poems written "to" Sylvia Plath over the years following her death. I think I like the idea of Ted Hughes and his history (including the complicated relationship to Plath) than I do his poetry. There were several poems that spoke to me, though, including "Full Moon and Little Frieda": "A cool small evening shrunk to a dog bark and the clank of a bucket--/ And you listening./ A spider's web, tense [...]


    9. I originally heard Ted Hughes' poetry read by himself (from a recording) in a poetry class. As I caught snippets of strange luminosity, I hurriedly scribbled them down, and have only now gone back and tracked down the actual poems. This volume contains all three of them: "Bride and Groom Lie Hidden for Three Days," "Life is Trying to be Life," and "Ravens." All three are even better than I remembered, and I'm already happy I bought this collection. I look forward to learning more about Hughes an [...]


    10. Ted Hughes and his generation of poets are the poets that inspire me to create. They are the makers of modern American poetry, in my mind, and I enjoy them as much as a good novel. I like this generation more than the current one, unfortunately, and they way Hughes himself creates and world, a time, an emotion, out of verse is unrivaled by even his more famous wife.


    11. Not a big fan of Hughes. Revelling in grossness in a way that doesn't feel meaningful or sophisticated. Some lovely pieces, though, and good to have a slightly different voice from the others in the course.


    12. A masterful selection of Hughes' work. Hughes' poetry is descriptive and poignant. He is a must read poet for all ages. His work does contain adult themes and language.
