A Letter From Ted Hughes To His Son Nicholas, read by RM.
In 1986, 23 years after the death of Sylvia Plath, celebrated poet Ted Hughes wrote the following letter to their 24-year-old son, Nicholas, and, quite beautifully, advised him to embrace his “childish self” so as to experience life to its fullest.
Tragically, during a period of depression in 2009, Nicholas took his own life. He was 47.
Give it a listen.
