Ted Hughes Memorial Lecture, 7th July 2018

The bi-annual Ted Hughes Memorial Lecture will be given this year by the former editor-in-chief of Faber & Faber, Robert McCrum at the Ways with Words Festival of Words and Ideas taking place at Dartington Hall on 7th July 2018.

Robert McCrum will be drawing on his own memories of working with Hughes as well as his sustained reading of the poet's work to explore Hughes's fascination with William Shakespeare, and to offer a reappraisal of Hughes's prose work.
