ted hughes

what i like about ted hughes’ poetry is the intentional obscurity of it all and a form and flow chosen deliberately to obfuscate the reader. you cannot read his poetry fast…you must slow down with him and his words…you must stop, consider and reread. his poems are filled with grammatical and structural speed-bumps designed to make us walk instead of run and in walking we might see things we would otherwise have missed – beautiful, painful things worth considering.
