They were written during or shortly after the encounters that prompted them, remaining largely unaltered. Statements and letters lay bare his method’s situated acts of experience giving rise to impulses. This essay considers how such situated acts constitute a theatre-site of writing which opens and remains live towards acts of reading. It contrasts a letter written by Hughes four years before writing the poem ‘Coming Down through Somerset’, suggesting the former is a dress rehearsal and beginning of continuous duration which includes the writing of the final poem.
