Catalogue Note

Although Hughes did not contribute to this memorial volume, there is an illustration on page 66 showing Larkin with Hughes at Hull University. The former head of Sotheby's book department Roy Davids (1942-2017) was a good friend of Ted and Carol Hughes and a published poet. Hughes' Shakespeare and the Goddess of Complete Being (1992) is dedicated to him.
