    Excellent thorough interesting biography of a fascinating person in a complex time Hughes negotiates everything very well and keeps a good balance of writing about her life and work together Also very readable Recommended for anyone who likes Eliot's work This is what I always hope biographies will be like and I'll be looking for anything else by Hughes
