Notes

First UK edition, first impression. Presentation copy to the author's sister Olwyn Hughes, inscribed on the half-title "For Olwyn - love from Ted November 1986". The American edition had been published in September 1986, the UK edition in October. Hughes was very close to his sister Olwyn. After Plath's suicide in 1963 Olwyn helped to bring up their children, became her brother's literary agent, established the Rainbow Press with Ted in 1971 to produce fine press editions of his works, and remained devoted to him her entire life.
