Welcome to the meticulously observed world of Frieda Hughes. It is a world of tangible materiality constantly on the brink of change, a world populated with foxes and fire, fathers and lovers, mothers and birdmen--a world that is ultimately combustible, fragile, fearsome, and elegiacally beautiful. Hughes maps the landscape, both within and without, in language possessed of an almost painterly sensitivity and a sublime mastery of craft. The self she depicts is one who is tested by loss, danger, betrayal, and abandonment, yet one who is transformed through experience into a world beyond nihilism and despair a place that makes possible truth, strength of character, and the redemptive power of love.

Her work, at its best, is sharp, vigorous and cunning. Her vision Is strange and imaginative, at times possessing the odd lilting rhythms and surreal imagery of a dark and menacing nursery rhyme.""-- Denver Post""Highly accomplished ... a major debut.""-- Kirkus Reviews (Starred)"About the Author:
