Her Husband : Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath were husband and wife; they were also two of the most remarkable poets of the twentieth century. In this stunning new account of their marriage, acclaimed biographer Diane Middlebrook draws on a trove of newly available papers to craft a beautifully written portrait of Hughes as a man, as a poet, and as a husband haunted - and nourished - his entire life by the aftermath of his wife's suicide. Penetrating, deeply insightful, and marvelously lucid, Her Husband is a triumph of the biographer's art and an up-close look at a couple who saw each other as the means to becoming who they wanted to be: writers and mythic figures representing their generation.
