TED HUGHES SELECTION (article first published : 2005-06-21)

At the next meeting of The Live Poets' Society in Durban poets can compare their selections of their favourite poems of all time with those of UK's late, great Poet Laureate Ted Hughes.

Shortly before Hughes died, he compiled and recorded 101 poems which he believed everyone should know. The anthology is entitled By Heart and spans work over 500 years, from pre-Shakespeare to the present day. All the usual suspects are there plus a number of surprises, including one work by Hughes' suicidal wife Sylvia Plath. The film Sylvia about her life and death was recently on circuit.

A rich selection of Hughes' recordings will be played and those present may read their own favourite poems by other poets.

Taking a cue from the title of Hughes' collection, the evening's theme is "Heart". So those attending are also invited to present any of their work which could be linked to this subject. Winding up the night with the Poet Pourri session, work on any subject may be aired.

The Live Poets Society meeting will take place on The Quarterdeck at The Point Yacht Club at 18h00 on June 28.

There is no charge and all are welcome, regardless of whether or not they write poetry. A full cash bar and limited menu are available. The car park is manned by dedicated guards. More details from Brett Beiles on 031 266 4762 (a/h) or 082 516 0517 or email thirdeye@3i.co.za
