In this book, the author draws extensively on psychological and esoteric theory, including Jungian psychology, the work of Gurdjieff, Ouspensky, Simone Weil and Carlos Castenada, to examine Ted Hughes's poetic development in an attempt to recover the poetry's "deep structure". The author suggests that in order to fully appreciate Hughes's poetry we need nothing less than a new critical language which is fully attentive to the psychological receptivity of writer and reader, and the emotional charge of the poetry, and which engages the imaginative, mythological and metaphysical sources of our understanding.
