Abstract:

The collection consists primarily of 49 letters Ted Hughes wrote to János Csokits from 1960 to 1998. The correspondence ranges from personal to professional, with most letters combining the two. In this correspondence, Hughes sends news of his day-to-day home and family life, his translations of Pilinszky poems, comments on Csokits' translations, and ideas for their collaboration. During the course of the correspondence, Hughes also writes candidly about his frustration over Sylvia Plath's literary reputation and the material being published about her. He writes to Csokits about his own publications relating to Plath, including a candid letter about his motivation for the publication of BIRTHDAY LETTERS. Several of the letters include drafts of Pilinszky translations. Csokits provides a detailed, letter-by-letter annotation, which is included in the collection. In addition to the letters by Hughes, the collection includes a manuscript of the poem, "Theology," which later appeared in WODWO. The collection also includes photocopies of most of Csokits' letters to Ted Hughes and to Olwyn Hughes from the same period. Although many of these letters are contained in Emory University's Ted Hughes collection, Csokits has provided copies of some letters not included in the collection, and he has appended translations to some of the copies in order to further elucidate their contents. Csokits has also appended a draft of Hughes' introduction to DESERT OF LOVE, and correspondence related to his personal reservations about publishing a Hungarian edition of the Pilinszky translations (which was never produced), to the photocopies of the relevant letters. The collection also includes letters to and from Carol Hughes, Ted Hughes' widow, which discuss his estate. Also included are letters from Olwyn Hughes to Csokits, dating from 1963-2007, which are restricted until the death of Olwyn Hughes. In addition, all letters from Csokits to Hughes from 1964-1974, as well as several letters from 1975, are restricted until 2017. Several translations of various Pilinszky poems by both Hughes and Csokits, not related to any specific correspondence, are also contained in the collection. In addition, the collection includes photographs and some printed material featuring Ted Hughes and his work.
