Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy to the author's sister Olwyn, inscribed on the front free endpaper on the day of publication: "For Olwyn / Did we hit? / Or did we miss?/ How do we come / To be doing this? / Love from me Ted 18 September 1989". The short poem, or extract thereof, could not be traced in Hughes's published works. 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.
