Ted Hughes's Birthday Letters are addressed, with just two exceptions, to Sylvia Plath, the American poet to whom he was married. They were written over a period of more than twenty-five years, the first a few years after her suicide in 1963, and represent Ted Hughes's only account of his relationship with Plath and of the psychological drama that led both to the writing of her greatest poems and to her death. The book became an instant bestseller on its publication in 1998 and won the Forward Prize for Poetry in the same year.

'Erica Wagner has set the poems of Ted Hughes's Birthday Letters in the context of his marriage to Sylvia Plath with great delicacy . . . Her book is informed not only by Plath's journals and letters, but, more significantly, moonlit throughout by Plath's poetry.' Times Literary Supplement 'A commentary on Birthday Letters, gravely unfurling the biographical journey for which these most openly personal of poems are signposts, amplifying and interpreting.'

"This erudite critical study...breathes new life into Plath scholarship."—Publishers Weekly, starred review When Ted Hughes's Birthday Letters was published in 1998, it was greeted with astonishment and acclaim, immediately landing on the bestseller list. Few suspected that Hughes had been at work for a quarter of a century on this cycle of poems addressed to his first wife, Sylvia Plath. In Ariel's Gift, Erica Wagner explores the destructive relationship between these two poets through their lives and their writings. She provides a commentary to the poems in Birthday Letters, showing the events that shaped them and, crucially, showing how they draw upon Plath's own work. "Both narratively engaging and scholastically comprehensive."—Thomas Lynch, Los Angeles Times "Wagner has set the poems of Hughes's Birthday Letters in the context of his marriage to Plath with great delicacy."—Times Literary Supplement

A collection of Ted Hughes' poems from Birthday Letters are examined. The relationship between Hughes and his late wife Sylvia Plath is explored through an analysis of the collection. The author discusses the release of Birthday Letters after a 35 year "aggressive silence" from Hughes, as another intrigue in the Hughes/Plath mythology. However he believes this should not overshadow the literary value of the poetry.
