9780008118228: Ted Hughes: The Unauthorised Life

A captivating life of Ted Hughes, told with great depth by the prize-winning author of ‘The Genius of Shakespeare’, and biographer of John Clare, Jonathan Bate.

Ted Hughes, Poet Laureate, was one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. With an equal gift for poetry and prose, he had a magnetic personality and an insatiable appetite for friendship, for love and for life.

But he attracted more scandal than any poet since Lord Byron.

Renowned scholar Sir Jonathan Bate has spent five years in his archives, unearthing a wealth of new material. Here for the first time is the full story of Ted Hughes's life and work. At its centre is Hughes’s lifelong quest to come to terms with the suicide of his first wife, Sylvia Plath.

Recensione:

Praise for Jonathan Bate:

‘The best book about Shakespeare for a generation’ Philip Howard, The Times

‘As brilliant an account of the Bard’s iconic universality as you could hope to find’ Michael Billington, Guardian

‘Absolutely dazzling – illuminates the whole man and the influence he has in our lives’ Simon Callow, Sunday Express

‘Occupies the territory of biography, literary criticism, theatrical and social history, and a journey across its landscape is one of constant delight and illumination’ Sir Richard Eyre, Financial Times, Books of the Year

‘The theme of this wonderfully written, diverse book is diversity itself, and the range of the essays serves only to confirm the disparate nature of Shakespeare’s achievement’ Peter Ackroyd, The Times

‘The liveliest and most intelligent general book on Shakespeare I have read for a long time’ John Gross, Sunday Telegraph, Books of the Year

L'autore:

Jonathan Bate CBE is Provost of Worcester College and Professor of English Literature at Oxford University. He is Vice-President of the British Academy, a Governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Honorary Fellow of St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, and was a 2014 judge for the Man Booker Prize. His biography of John Clare (a poet who was a key influence on Ted Hughes) was short-listed for seven literary prizes and won three of them, including Britain’s two oldest literary awards, the James Tait Black Prize for Biography and the Hawthornden Prize (which Hughes won for Lupercal). Soul of the Age, his intellectual biography of Shakespeare, was runner up for the Biography Prize of American PEN. He has also published on the influence of the classics (‘Shakespeare and Ovid’), on Wordsworth (‘Romantic Ecology’) and the poetry of nature (‘The Song of the Earth’), and has worked in the theatre (‘Being Shakespeare: A One-Man Play’ for Simon Callow), all of which were Hughesian obsessions.

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 240 x 159 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE Gripping and at times ineffably sad, this book would be poetic even without the poetry. It will be the standard biography of Hughes for a long time to come Sunday Times Captures the great poet in all his wild complexity. Powerful and clarifying, richly layered and compelling Melvyn Bragg, Observer Ted Hughes, Poet Laureate, was one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. He is one of Britain s most important poets, a poet of claws and cages: Jaguar, Hawk and Crow. Event and animal are turned to myth in his work. Yet he is also a poet of deep tenderness, of restorative memory steeped in the English literary tradition. A poet of motion and force, of rivers, light and redemption, of beasts in brooding landscapes. With an equal gift for poetry and prose, and with a soul as capacious as any poet who has lived, he was also a prolific children s writer and has been hailed as the greatest English letter-writer since John Keats. With his magnetic personality and an insatiable appetite for friendship, for love and for life, he also attracted more scandal than any poet since Lord Byron. At the centre of this book is Hughes s lifelong quest to come to terms with the suicide of his first wife, Sylvia Plath, the saddest and most infamous moment in the public history of modern poetry. Ted Hughes left behind him a more complete archive of notes and journals than any other major poet, including thousands of pages of drafts, unpublished poems and memorandum books that make up an almost complete record of Hughes s inner life, preserved by him for posterity. Renowned scholar Sir Jonathan Bate has spent five years in his archives, unearthing a wealth of new material. Shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, his book offers for the first time the full story of Ted Hughes s life as it was lived, remembered and reshaped in his art. It is a book that honours, though not uncritically, Ted Hughes s poetry and the art of life-writing, approached by his biographer with an honesty answerable to Hughes s own.
