Ted Hughes: 3 Poems from “River”

Ted Hughes: 3 Poems from "River" Human Voices Wake Us

An episode from 9/8/21: A reading of three poems from Ted Hughes’s 1983 book, River. They can all be found in his Collected Poems. “Four March Watercolours” and “October Salmon” seem to me two of Hughes’s finest poems, and the culmination of what he was able to do with lyric and narrative nature poems.

  • Four March Watercolours
  • After Moonless Midnight
  • October Salmon
