ted hughes induced summertime sadness



 Hat - H&M
Sunglasses - Citymarket





I think my opinion of not being too keen on Ted Hughes will be unpopular among people who read poetry. I don't particularly dislike him, but I don't like him either. I suppose I just think that a lot of poets that are highly regarded are actually quite overrated. However, I'd much rather be reading (imho) mediocre poetry in the sun like I was doing a few months back, than reading about the socio-economic organisation of the west Roman Empire circa 4th century and listening to the raindrops hit the window like they are at the minute. Now it's much more likely for me to have over-hydrated skin from walking to uni in the misty mornings than to drink litres of ice tea and try and not get dehydrated in the sun. Sadness.

Anyway, do you guys read poetry, and if yes is there a poet you'd recommend me to check out? Or what else is up in your pretty lil' lives?

I have to admit that I have never erad anything from Hughes. I tend to not be the biggest reader of poetry - but not for any particular reason. But, now I am thinking that I should give it a try, because as I remember, I really did love poetry back in school - it's just that when you become an adult, it seems like there is little time of these simple lovely pleasures.

I'm not huge into poetry... maybe I should try it out sometime.

Eline said...

I have to say i LOVE reading, but i always read 'normal' books instead of poetry. I've never given it a real try to be honest, maybe i should start doing that!

I really love Anne Sexton - I have a few off her books and some of them just hit all the right chords with me.
