This second two CD set draws on the broadcasts Ted Hughes made for schools, particularly the highly praised "Listening and Writing" series, later published as "Poetry in the Making", in which Hughes aimed to encourage an interest in imaginative writing in 10-14 year olds. Hughes explains the origins and development of some of his most famous animal poems, such as "The Thought-Fox and Pike", and suggests techniques of concentration for translating thoughts into poems. The set contains five complete "Listening and Writing" talks, all illustrated with Hughes' readings of his own and others' poetry, plus two complementary programmes of readings from the collection "Season Songs".
