Author(s): Ted Hughes


Fiftieth anniversary edition of this ambitious, shapeshifting, mythical work. This anniversary edition with a new foreword by Marina Warner celebrates fifty years since original publication of Crow (1970), which marked a pivotal moment in Ted Hughes's writing career. Growing out of an invitation by Leonard Baskin to make a book with him about crows, Hughes found both a structure and a persona that gave his vision a new power and coherence. A deep engagement with history, mythology and the natural world combine to forge a work of impressive and unsettling force.
