Ted Hughes

Ted Hughes is a British poet and author, who is mostly noted for his tragic relationship with his first wife, the American poet Sylvia Plath. Hughes served as poet laureate of England from 1984 to 1998.

Ted Hughes was born in Mytholmroyd, England, and educated at the University of Cambridge. While at Cambridge he met Sylvia Plath. They ultimately got married in 1956. Unfortunately Hughes left his wife in 1963, and Plath committed suicide in the same year. Many scholars still believe that Hughes was responsible for Plath’s untimely and pathetic demise.

Hughes’s first significant publication was The Hawk in the Rain (1957). His other works include Lupercal (1960), Wodwo (1967), Crow (1970), Selected Poems: 1957-1967 (1972), Season Songs (1976), and Moortown (1979). Hughes also wrote children's plays, poems, and stories, including the poems Under the North Star (1981) and What is the Truth? (1984). Winter Pollen: Occasional Prose (1995) is a collection of reviews, prefaces, and critical essays. Hughes published Birthday Letters in 1998, which comprised 88 poems either about Plath or focusing on their relationship.

Ted Hughes Quotes

“The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.”
― Ted Hughes, Letters of Ted Hughes

“Nothing is free. Everything has to be paid for. For every profit in one thing, payment in some other thing. For every life, a death. Even your music, of which we have heard so much, that had to be paid for. Your wife was the payment for your music. Hell is now satisfied.”
― Ted Hughes, The Tiger's Bones

“Nobody wanted your dance,
Nobody wanted your strange glitter, your floundering
Drowning life and your effort to save yourself,
Treading water, dancing the dark turmoil,
Looking for something to give.”
― Ted Hughes, Birthday Letters

Sample Letter Complaining about Bad Road

Sample Tender Submission Letter

A Complaint Letter to Municipal/Ward Commissioner Describing Poor Road Condition

May 06, 2017

Name of Addressee
Designation
Name of Company
Address

Sub: Abject Condition of Road.

Dear Sir,

I, the undersigned would like to inform you about a serious issue which needs your urgent attention.

We, the residents of [insert municipality/ ward name] have been undergoing a terrible hardship due to bad condition of the road that connects [insert area] with [insert area]. Previously the road was metalled and was in a quite good shape. However, the condition of the road deteriorated when the road was cut open [insert years] back to lay utility pipes. Upon completion of the work the road was temporarily covered with sand, debris and mud. It was expected that the road would be restored to its metallic state after the rainy season was over. But regretfully the authority has not yet taken any visible steps in this regard.

Over the past few years the condition of the road has much worsened since it has developed many pitfalls, ranging from small to dangerously big ones. A slight rainfall makes the road muddy, slippery and submerged, making it extremely impossible for the pedestrians to walk along it. Moreover, vehicles can't ply freely and often fall a victim to submerged pitfalls.

In fine, the misery ensued from the subject road can't be described in words. Therefore, we would request you to kindly look into the matter urgently and make sure that the road is restored to its metallic condition as early as possible.

Thanks in advance for your prompt action.

On behalf of the residents of [insert ward/municipality name]:
