A beautiful watercolour illustration of a Fox in the Snow by Daniel Mackie

The Thought Fox by Ted Hughes is considered one of his finest early works. It’s set at midnight when the poet looks out of a window at a dark, snowy forest. The night is a metaphor for Hughes’ imagination in whose depths an idea mysteriously stirs. Slowly, he teases out the idea in the form of a fox. First, ‘a fox’s nose’, then ‘two eyes’, then ‘neat prints in the snow’, and finally, ‘with a sudden sharp hot stink’ the woodland creature ‘enters the dark hole of the head.’
