New book by Keith Sagar!

Ted Hughes and Nature: ›Terror and Exultation‹. Fastprint Publishing, 2010 (www.fast-print.net, £ 9.50). From the announcement:

Hughes' relationship with nature is so central to his work that every book on him has discussed it. However, because of the larger scope of all these books, this discussion has remained at a fairly superficial level. Here Keith Sagar tries to take it onto a deeper level by relating it to paganism and Christianity, myth, Greek tragedy, Shakespeare, and the whole tradition of nature poetry in English, to Hughes' particular canon of revered poets, to his wider reading and the shaping events of his life. He traces Hughes' painful journey from terror in the face of nature in his first three collections, through the transitional works from Crow to Cave Birds, to the transformation in Moortown and Remains of Elmet, culminating in the exultation of River. He argues that these three collections constitute the apex of Hughes' achievement, and are among the great works of world literature.

Contents
  1. Prologue: Civilization versus Nature
  2. Influences
  3. Terror: The Hawk in the Rain, Lupercal, Wodwo
  4. The Worst Moment: Crow, Prometheus on his Crag
  5. Interim: ›The Great Theme: Notes on Shakespeare‹, ›Myth and Education‹, ›The Environmental Revolution‹.
  6. Restoration: Gaudete, Cave Birds
  7. The Beasts of the Field: Moortown Diaries
  8. Awake!: Adam and the Sacred Nine 
  9. Payment: Earth-numb, A Solstice, ›The Head‹
  10. The Laughter of Foxes: Remains of Elmet 
  11. Exultation: River

Website Issues

If you are wondering about the recent scarcity of updates -- I'm in the process of migrating the entire site to a content management system. As the site completes its 11th year, it is time to put it on proper feet to get on top of the wealth of content and make it manageable once again. What will it mean? Among other advantages, the site will get a better layout and readability, accessibility of content will improve and there will be a proper site search engine. Moreover, I'll add modules that will allow selected contributors to add and manage their own content, special news corners etc. There'll also be RSS feeds so you'll always be up-to-date on what's going on, and much more.

Carol Bere just forwarded some exciting news about the project for a Ted Hughes Centre in Mytholmroyd. According to the Yorkshire Post (3 April), over £2m were pledged for the centre which is to be housed in the former Mytholmroyd railway station. Yorkshire Forward, a regional regeneration agency, is to contribute £1,153,000, the Heritage Lottery Fund will give £1m to the project and further money will come from Calderdale Council (£185,000), the Railway Heritage Trust (£45,000) and HBOS (£50,000).

According to Alan Brooks, chairman of Mytholmroyd's Royd Regeneration, »negotiations for the lease on the old railway station are progressing and a business plan has been commissioned.« It is planned that the Ted Hughes Centre will eventually incorporate an archive, educational facilities and possibly a café and bookshop.

The article further reports that the »proposals have also been given fresh impetus following the inaugural meeting of the Elmet Trust, a new organisation which, when formally constituted, will be responsible for managing the birthplace of Hughes – 1 Aspinal Street, as well as the proposed centre and additional property close to the station.

The trust also plans to hold an annual festival in Mytholmroyd on Hughes's birthday – August 17 – to commemorate the poet's life and work.«

26-viii-2005: New Project by Matthew Howard; Course by Terry Gifford; Emory Conference Schedule; Sketch of Ted Hughes by Sylvia Plath

New Project by Matthew Howard

»I am currently working on a project focused on the Hughes letters held within the various archives.

I would like to review all of the Hughes correspondence that is archived and condense it down into individual ›cribs‹. These could be as simple as providing the basic information such as date written, where from, who to, number of pages of handwritten/typed and so on, but will also include brief details of the content of the letter. In other words, the crib could highlight where exactly TH writes about his own work, the work of others, ecology, biographical facts, animal life etc. My idea is that these cribs could then be made available to scholars which would ultimately save time in the archive, or even visting the archive as, if done thoroughly, the information would be pinpointed to specific, individual letters. It may also be possible to put the 'cribs' into a computer database which would enable even easier searching.

This idea evolved out of the intial thought of my producing a calendar of all of TH's extant letters. Doubtless there will be a collected letters produced at some stage and it would be essential to trace and have copies of each letter as soon as possible as those not in collections are always at risk of being lost forever. That said this original idea is likely to be too great for one person, in the tracing alone. Formulating the calendar thereafter would also be a mammoth task. Thus, the idea of doing the same kind of thing for the letters in the various archives is a kind of smaller version, but with the additional perceived benefit of making a searchable database to aid Hughes scholarship.«

Update on Terry Gifford's one-week course:

‘Ted Hughes - a study week’ with Dr. Terry Gifford, Oct 22nd – Oct 29th 2005 at the Almàssera Vella - Relleu SPAIN

MANY OF THE CENTRAL themes of Ted Hughes’s poetry concerning the relations between humans and the environment are present in the landscape and culture of this part of Spain. Hughes and Plath chose to spend their honeymoon in 1956 in the little fishing village of Benidorm. We will visit the house they stayed in. New and Selected Poems 1957-1994 will be the set text for this course – some references will be made to Collected Poems for those seeking further reading. We will use active individual or paired readings exercises in preparation for group discussion – not a master-class but an open exploration into the richly texture meanings of the poems. This will be of special interest to teachers of literature at any level as well as the interested general reader. Adjustments to cater for individual interests can be made. Each day will begin by exploring key questions via specific texts – ‘How do we read and discuss a poem by Ted Hughes?” “What are the manifesto poems and where rooted?” “Plath/Hughes: a working relationship?” “What were the final achievements and frustrations?”

DR TERRY GIFFORD was former Reader in Literature and Environment at the University of Leeds. He co-wrote a monograph on Ted Hughes in 1981 and is currently engaged in assembling the Complete Critical Guide of his work for Routledge. He is the author of five collections of poetry, his latest being The Unreliable Mushrooms: New and Selected Poems (Bradford: Redbeck, 2003

RELLEU, Iberian in origin, is nowadays an unspoilt mountain village in the Marina Baja Range, a half hour drive from the sea. The village has a 10th century castle and a fine calvary. Bars, pharmacy and shops are a few minutes walk from the Almassera.

ALMASSERA VELLA was Relleu’s original olive press now fully refurbished as a Literature and Arts Centre and Retreat. Delightful bedrooms and bathrooms, generous reception, deep loggia, 3000 book library, and extensive rear terrace with swimming pool and almond orchard plus ruined Moorish farm-house and an olive grove.
