RAI RESEARCH SEMINAR

SEMINAR SERIES AT THE ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSTITUTE

What did Ted Hughes learn from anthropology?

Professor Bob Layton, Durham University

Wednesday 10 June at 5.30 pm

During the second year of his undergraduate career in Cambridge, Ted Hughes found that study in the English Department was stifling his creativity, and he transferred to Anthropology. The paper asks what Hughes may have hoped to gain from anthropology, what he is likely to have actually learned, and how anthropological knowledge informs his poetry and prose.
