Scope and Content

Partly typewritten and partly autograph material including unpublished poetry (written on both loose sheets of paper and in old school exercise books) some of which seems to relate to areas that Hughes visited including Alaska and Kenya. Also includes questions and answers about Grimersta (area on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides); a copy of 'The Bear' (with slight variations from the published version); an unpublished poem entitled 'Swimming Eagle'; a menu for a birthday meal for Ted Hughes at Grimersta Lodge in 1991; and some loose leaf notes and research notes about fishing made in two school exercise books.
