Notes

First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy to the author's sister Olwyn Hughes, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Olwyn from Ted lots of love Dec 1972". The UK edition was first published in December 1969. 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.
