Scope and Content Note

The collected materials located in Series 10 include correspondence and other material acquired from various sources. It is primarily composed of letters written by Hughes with some accompanying enclosures. This correspondence has been arranged alphabetically and chronologically by the last name of the correspondent. The one exception is a set of letters regarding the 1967 Poetry International Festival which Ted Hughes helped organize. This correspondence, including letters from Yehuda Amichai, W.H. Auden, Allen Ginsberg, Pablo Neruda, and others, are grouped alphabetically under Poetry International. The series also includes a manuscript of Her Husband: Hughes and Plath: A Marriage by Diane Middlebrook and a copybook kept by Enid Wilkinson containing two early Ted Hughes poems written in his hand.
