This two CD set is drawn from the BBC Radio broadcasts of Ted Hughes and features live and studio recordings of the poet introducing and reading his own work. The recordings include his earliest surviving poetry broadcast and extensive selections from 'Remains of Elmet' and 'Moortown Diary' plus selections from his 'Crow' poems and two complete short stories, 'The Harvesting' and 'Snow'. Hughes was Poet Laureate from 1984 until his death in 1998 and is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished British poets of the post-war period.

[The] power of his wrestling words is given a mighty new dimension by the poet's own, spoken voice ... be overawed by the vigour and strength of his language, by his mighty, questioning, sinewy genius. --Sue Gaisford, The Independent
[This] will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. --Sue Arnold, The Guardian
