Recorded Live for BBC Radio 3, leading writers provide insight, opinion and intellectual surprise around the subject of Ted Hughes.

20 years since the death of Ted Hughes, we are still arguing about his legacy. In a new series of the Radio 3 Essay, poets Simon Armitage, Karen McCarthy Woolf and Zaffar Kunial bring a sharp eye to the poems themselves, reminding us why Hughes is regarded as one of the Twentieth Century's greatest writers, and exploring how the works match up to, inform and contradict what we know of the man.

The studio recording will be followed by an audience Q and A session.

(Part 2 will be recorded Sunday 1430-1530 at The Horncastle Building, Charlotte Street, Hull HU1 3DG)
