For any Hughes or Plath fans - Interview with Frieda Hughes on Radio 3's Private Passions, it's available for the next six days. Includes her choice of music from Classical to AC/DC!

I'm listening to it as I write this and it's giving me the shivers, she sounds so like Plath - the same smooth, deep, very articulate voice despite the fact that her accent is quite different.
An artist and poet in her own right, Frieda (isn't that just a lovely name?) Hughes has published three collections of poetry, several children's books and held numerous exhibitions of her art work.

Thanks to Peter at Sylvia Plath Info blog for the link.

really enjoyed it, she reads a couple of her poems, one of them a tribute to her late brother.

Thank you for this link. I enjoyed the interview very much -- I have to find her work now! It’s a marvel that she is so grounded and together, considering….

glad you enjoyed it and I agree - I was surprised at her super-confident tone.
