Stained Ted Hughes journal found...














The British Library has acquired a rare copy of Ted Hughes's journal. 'St. Botolph's Review', established by the Poet Laureate with friends at Cambridge University in 1956, is often cited as launching his career, and features some of his earliest works. The particular copy, stained and containing several handwritten notes by Hughes, is one of only three in UK public institutions and was obtained from his widow Carol. Curator Helen Broderick said; 'I hope [this will] lead to further research into his life and development as a poet and writer'.
