Wilkinson, Dean (18 July 2011). The Classic Children's Television Quiz Book. Andrews UK Limited. ISBN 978-1-908548-89-4 . Retrieved 15 February 2021. Ted Hughes’ The Crow was a mixed bag for me. Some poems went right over my head no matter how many times I would read them. Others read like pretentious claptrap. But then there were a handful that I enjoyed reading, like “Crow Goes Hunting”:

My favorite poem in the book is “Apple Tragedy.” The ending is so unexpected that it made me laugh. My brain melted all the other poems into a big puddle of misery, so I don’t really remember them. I guess I missed whatever is so amazing about this collection.The Biggest New Band in America". Rolling Stone. 30 June 1994. Archived from the original on 15 November 2006 . Retrieved 1 May 2022.

As one can guess the subject matter is bleak. Death permeates the poem, not only that, but Hughes is questioning and rejecting his beliefs. Within both poem and character of Crow Hughes invokes Greek and native American Mythology – all personified by Crow.

In ‘Crow’s Fall’, Ted Hughes presents the hamartia of the mythological crow for his act of presumption. Like T. S. Eliot who wrote "Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an abandonment". And Wislawa Szymborska whose poem "In Fact Every Poem" begins: "In fact every poem might be called "Moment." And finally, Stephen Fry who said "I believe poetry is a primal impulse within us all."

When eighty California poets come together to create an anthology about crows and ravens, you know these corvids have a strong grip on the human imagination.

Atskirai parašysiu, kad "Giesmė falui" (per ilga, nenurašysiu) - ne tik eilėraščio, bet ir vertimo meistrystė (vertė Burokas su Plateliu). Pirmi pora posmelių: All upcoming public events are going ahead as planned and you can find more information on our events blog The poem begins with Crow born out of ugliness, he, however is white, which means he is pure and is God’s companion. Soon though signs are starting to show that Crow may cause trouble. In the section, crow’s first lesson Hod is trying to teach him to say love but instead all that comes out of his mouth are objects of destruction, the last object signifying the strife that will exist between man and woman (which in turn is probably Hughes way of displaying his treatment of Plath).

In a ground-breaking article for the latest issue of The Ted Hughes Society Journal, Peter Fydler charted in illuminating detail the origins – and most importantly the competing origin-myths – of Hughes’s Crow project: The crow pointed his beak towards the sun and flew with full force to replace its position. He cawed his battle cry in the sky. As it flew closer to the sun, his body temporarily hid the sun. The trees looked old for the shadow around them. In ‘ Crow’s Fall’ Hughes uses this imagery to intensify the tension of the poem.
