Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hughes's poetic style if fully of beauty and pathos. Highly recommended."--Library Journal

"[Hughes uses] the same technique of adaptation he deployed so well in Tales from Ovid, paring Classical polysyllables to the minimum, and finding the grain of mythic significance...His portrayal of the surviving and self-chastising Admetos is acute. Whatever shades of autobiography may writhe through these lines--they belong to a drama that works."--Nigel Spivey, The Daily Telegraph

About the Author

Among Ted Hughes's other translations are The Oresteia of Aeschylus, Racine's Phedre, and Tales from Ovid. His last book of poems, Birthday Letters, won the Whitbread Book of the Year Prize. He was Poet Laureate to Queen Elizabeth II and lived in Devon, England until he died in 1998.
