‘All Things Considered’ signed by Paul Roche

This signed first edition hardback of All Things Considered by the poet Paul Roche was published by Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd. in 1966.

The dust jacket features a portrait of Roche by Bloomsbury artist Duncan Grant - a full account of their relationship and Roche's life and work as a poet, classical scholar, novelist and translator of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Sappho and Plautus, can be found in his Times Online obituary published in November 2007.

Ted Hughes | Birthday Letters

Short news report of the 1999 Whitbread Award for Poetry which was posthumously awarded to Ted Hughes for his astounding and at times devastatingly moving 'Birthday Letters' (first published in 1998).

The award was accepted by Frieda Hughes, the daughter of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, who bears a striking resemblance to her mother. Incidentally, the dust jacket for the UK Faber and Faber Edition of the book features a detail from a painting by Frieda.
