The issue includes a remarkable and previously unpublished poem by Ted Hughes, “Last letter”, describing the days leading up to the suicide of his first wife, the poet Sylvia Plath. Its first line is: “What happened that night? Your final night.” — and the poem ends with the moment Hughes is informed of his wife’s death.
