Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy to the author's sister Olwyn Hughes, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Olwyn love Ted 9th March 1992". The inscription precedes the book's publication date, on 13 April 1992, by a month. 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.
