Scope and Content

Partly typewritten, partly autograph correspondence, mostly letters exchanged between Hughes and Nick Gammage about The Epic Poise: a celebration of Ted Hughes, which Gammage initially compiled to celebrate Hughes's 70th birthday. The letters include enquiries about the volume, information about contributors and some of their contributions with a poem by Charles Tomlinson, essays by Jon Stallworthy and William [Bill] Merwin, and drafts of an essay by Gammage. Correspondence between Gammage and Carol Hughes sent following Hughes's death and a photocopy of the front cover of the volume are also included.
