Description

Published in 1957, Hawk in the Rain was Ted Hughes’s first collection of poems. It won the New York Poetry Centre First Publication Award, for which the judges were W. H. Auden, Stephen Spender and Marianne Moore, and the Somerset Maugham Award, and it was acclaimed by every reviewer from A. Alvarez to Edwin Muir. When Robin Skelton wrote, ‘All looking for the emergence of a major poet must buy it’, he was right to see in it the promise of what many now regard as the most important body of work by any poet of the twentieth century.
