Birthday Letters - Ted Hughes

This picture was taken in Amsterdam, 2004.

Ted Hughes was an English poet and children's writer.
Birthday Letters was first published in 1998.

The 2003 film Sylvia tells the story of Ted Hughes' relationship with the American poet Sylvia Plath.

"It was a visit from the goddess, the beauty
Who was poetry's sister - she had come
To tell poetry she was spoiling us.
Poetry listened, maybe, but we heard nothing
And poetry did not tell us. And we
Only did what poetry told us to do."
