There is no reason to doubt that Hughes had a difficult time writing poetry at Cambridge, or that this was partly caused by the academic study of literature, though we may note that he also kept no poetry written between June 1949 and October 1951, a period in which he was entirely out of the academic world. 37 I suggest that, insofar as it was caused by the critical environment of Cambridge, this confusion was not necessarily the anti-creative oppression of Hughes’ self-mythology. He was a major creative talent working towards a new form of expression.
I will be questioning this myth, arguing that parts of it are demonstrably untrue, and that others don’t necessarily bear the weight of interpretation put on them. This has consequences for the way we regard the relation of Hughes’ poetry to the academy, and more generally of creative writing to criticism. At the end of his life Hughes wrote to Keith Sagar that, when he sat the entrance exams for Pembroke College, Cambridge, his English teacher John Fisher sent a sheaf of poems to the Master of the College, in support of his application.
In his 1989 collection Moortown Diary (these poems had first been collected in the 1978 volume Moortown Elegies and the 1979 volume Moortown), Hughes further explores the role of animals and language in memorialization, recounting his experiences farming with his fatherin-law Jack Orchard. Moortown Diary chronicles the lives and deaths of dozens of individual animals, balancing the ‘to-fro futility’ (CP 519) of blood escaping ‘without loyalty’ (CP 523), with ‘the strength / Of the birth push’ (CP 519).
