Crow by Ted Hughes is a work of mythological power from one of the most important English poets of the twentieth century.

Crow was Ted Hughes's fourth book of poems for adults and a pivotal moment in his writing career. In it, he found both a structure and a persona that gave his vision a new power and coherence. A deep engagement with history, mythology and the natural world combine to forge a work of impressive and unsettling force.

'English poetry has found a new hero and nobody will be able to read or write verse now without the black shape of Crow falling across the page.' - Peter Porter
