MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is the best short overview of Hughes's career that I've read[...]Gifford's volume will, I am sure, come to be recognised as the best starting point for anyone planning serious study of Hughes' - Laurence Coupe, Green Letters

'Drawing on recently available archival research and letters, Gifford has provided richness, complexity, and new contexts to his interpretations of Hughes's writing. Gifford is also one of the few critics to offer a provocative, yet reasonable, assessment of Hughes's controversial reputation' - Carol Bere, Isle
