Poetry and Childhood

A new book edited by Morag Styles, Louise Joy and David Whitley includes essays on Hughes's children's writing, originally presented at a conference in 2009.

The essays are:

  • Lissa Paul: "Ted Hughes and the 'Old Age of Childhood'"
  • Peter Cook: "Poets in the Making: Ted Hughes, Poetry and Children" (could be identical to the paper presented at the Ted Hughes Conference in Cambridge in 2010)

I have no further details as I haven't seen the book yet.
