This anniversary edition celebrates fifty years since the original publication of Crow (1970) - the vital, shape-shifting collection
by Ted Hughes. Its context, including the integral role of the American artist Leonard Baskin and the significance of Hughes' own lived tragedies, is illuminated in a new foreword by Marina Warner, as is the influence of ancient forms, legends and beliefs. The result underscores the work's rough music and organic energy, as we encounter the enigmatic, unforgettable, 'hulking, metamorphic beast-bird' itself.

'These scraps, spoken by a crow, took poetry to a new beginning. They are the bones of poems - made of mere lines: rude, surreal, gleeful, desolate poems - which for all their bleakness transmit a flash of hope. I would exchange much of English literature for their dark courage.' Alice Oswald

Om forfatteren

Ted Hughes (1930-1998) won instant acclaim with his first book, The Hawk in the Rain, and a glittering literary career culminated four decades later with the Whitbread Book of the Year award for Tales from Ovid (1997) and then again for Birthday Letters (1998). He served fourteen years as Poet Laureate and in 1998 was appointed to the Order of Merit.
