"Occult Energies" was part of an ambitious book project in memory of Ted Hughes including contributions by Lucas Myers, Tim Supple, Michael Baldwin, Daniel Weissbort, Ann Skea, Terry Gifford, Claas Kazzer, Daniel Huws, Bertram Wyatt-Brown, Paul Muldoon and Seamus Heaney. Sadly, it came to nothing.
Ann's essay tells how she became aware of Ted Hughes's knowledge and use of Mysticism, Alchemy and Cabbala. Read it at the website of the Romanian Translation Café magazine here.
