This remarkable volume gathers all of his work, from his earliest poems (published only in journals) through the ground-breaking volumes Crow (1970), Gaudete(1977), and Tales from Ovid (1997). It includes poems Hughes composed for fine-press printers, poems he wrote as Englands Poet Laureate, and those childrens poems that he meant for adults as well. This omnium-gatherum of Hughess work is animated throughout by a voice that, as Seamus Heaney remarked, was simply longer and deeper and rougher than those of his contemporaries.
