Notes

First US edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Stephanie and Jimmy, with ten million thanks & love from Ted, July 1977". The recipients, Stephanie Bennett and James Mervis, hosted Ted Hughes during the New York blackout in July of that year, which resulted in city-wide looting. Stephanie Bennett is a film producer who works primarily on music documentaries. This work was originally published in the UK under the title The Coming of the Kings and Other Plays in 1970. The UK edition did not feature the play Orpheus, which was first published in 1971.
