For me, too much of Hughes' poetry is short and empty. However there are some poems that have a bit more to them and are well done. These have very political and social themes that I do not personally enjoy, but I can see some of them as worth reading. Still, I give it 2 stars because this 300 page collection could have easily been cut down to 100 and not have been missing anything that had any weight to it.
