Crow: From the Life and Songs of the Crow is a literary work by poet Ted Hughes, first published in 1970 by Faber and Faber, and one of Hughes' most important works. Writing for the Ted Hughes Society journal in 2012, Neil Roberts, Emeritus Professor of English Literature at the University of Sheffield, said: Crow holds a uniquely important place in Hughes oeuvre.

Crow was Ted Hughes's fourth book of poems for adults and a pivotal moment in his writing career. Suicide of Ted Hughes’s wife Sylvia Plath, 1963 Suicide of Ted Hughes’ current partner Assia Wevill, 1969 Publication of Crow, 1970. In it, he found both a structure and a persona that gave his vision a new power and coherence. Crow is really severe stuff. Crow is horror poetry. When Crow cried his mother’s ear Scorched to a stump.

Lineage is from the 2019 album CROW by Bird Radio and pig7, based on poems from Ted Hughes' 1970 collection of poems Crow: The Life and Songs of the Crow.

The book, dedicated to Hughes's dead second wife Assia Wevill and his daughter Shura, was published in 1972 .

The book, dedicated to Hughes's dead second wife Assia Wevill and his daughter Shura, was published in 1972, three years after their deaths. While many of the poems have no mention of Crow, most of them are stories about Crow's life told from an omniscient perspective. The question of Crow's actual identity is an open debate among literary critics. He has been labeled a trickster figure, a preternatural, god-like being, and even Satan himself. While none of these definitions can entirely sum up the essence of Crow, they each offer an insight into his complex personality.

Ted Hughes' "Crow" may well be my favorite 20th century book of poetry, and I purchased this copy to present as a Christmas present. Leonard Baskin's illustrations are stunning, and I was happy to find a copy through Amazon via a third party. However, despite the book being advertised on-line with Baskin's cover, the copy I was sent had a purely black cover, and Baskin's illustrations were not included in the edition I was sent (hence my 3-star ranking, instead of the 5 stars the book deserves). Because it was a Christmas gift, I did not have the time to return the item and request the edition I believed I had ordered.

All that being said, and with all due respect to his "Birthday Letters," Britain's former poet-laureate created his masterpiece with "Crow," introducing a volatile new character into the Garden of Eden who upsets and upends the order of things as we know it. Ted Hughes was a shaman of a poet, connected to darker energies and a mojo that by turns is sinister and hilarious. Not for the faint of heart, and certainly not for fundamentalists--Rick Santorum, beware! Infinitely more entertaining than King James, sexual, violent and irreverent, "Crow" is both a satire of one of the seed-myths of Middle Eastern culture (i.e., Genesis) and a gutsy interpolation into that myth of a "trickster" energy more akin to Coyote of the American Southwest than to anything biblical.

If I could publish a book of poetry as perfect as Crow by Ted Hughes, then I would truly be content as an Artist.

As an English major in 1973, one of my professors recommended this book of poetry. None of our textbooks contained any of Ted Hughes' work but I jotted his name and this title in the margin of one of my books. After graduating, I spent very little time reading or thinking about poetry. But I recently revived my interest in poetry, specifically after reading several biographies of Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. I pulled out my old poetry textbooks, found this note and immediately ordered Crow to read it for myself.

What an experience. The work is fantastic - the images, the rhythm, the concept. Amazing, entertaining, and relevant.

I highly recommend this book.

I have always been interested in him as Sylvia Plath's husband. But recently have come to really enjoy him for his own body of work. This one did not disappoint.

Shipping and delivery was extremely fast and the quality is great. I need this book for a course I'm taking but it's such a nice book that I think I may start reading it leisurely.
Eerie, Dark, Without Emotion is Ted Hughes' Crow. This small book of poetry takes us on a journey into the Stark and Selfish World of Crow. Crow defies all; even God.

It is not irony that Hughes dedicated this book to the memory of Assia and Shura.

At times it seems Crow is the personification of Hughes himself.

I find Crow to be a very beautiful, albeit nihilistic book of verse.
