Hughes's writing in The Iron Woman contains many metaphors, to excite children's imaginations. Ted Hughes (1930- 1978) was poet laureate of England. It also contains much good humour and many strokes of genius. He writes cleanly of mod cons - for example, binoculars - with little sense of any Eliotic 'malaise' in the face of technological advance. Barry Moser is an American artist who grew up in Chattanooga and who has illustrated every book from the Bible to the Alice books to The Wizard of Oz (where the Wicked Witch of the West was modeled on Nancy Reagan) to poetry books by Donald Hall.

Who better to call on but Hogarth and the Iron Man. A sequel and companion volume to Ted Hughes' The Iron Man, this new, child-friendly setting.

But if she had been awake she would have heard a strange sound – a skylark singing high in the darkness above the house.

But if she had been awake she would have heard a strange sound – a skylark singing high in the darkness above the house hrough binoculars, she might have seen the glowing, flickering body of the lark, far up there, catching the first rays of the sun, that peered at the bird from behind the world. The lark’s song showered down over the dark, dewy fields, over the house. Roofs, and over the still, wet gardens. But in Lucy’s bedroom it mingled with an even stranger sound, a strange, gasping whimper.

The Iron Woman tells the story of a female iron giant, a companion of the male iron giant of the earlier The Iron Man. The Iron Woman represents the spirit of nature fighting the human forces of industrialization which are destroying the environment. Hughes, in his letters, noted the ubiquitousness of children's worry about the environment, and here he is clearly concerned to entertain and instruct accordingly. While The Iron Woman is enjoyable and instructive, even for adults, it lacks the cogency of The Iron Man, and it is possible that Hughes had difficulty imagining a female monster rather than a male monster (monsters in literature being conventionally male, like Frankenstein's monster).

The Iron Woman appears to a small girl Lucy, who, like Hogarth in The Iron Man (Hogarth is also a character in this story), becomes sympathetically involved in the action relating to the Iron Woman. Lucy is reminiscent of Alice of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

Hughes's writing in The Iron Woman contains many metaphors, to excite children's imaginations. It also contains much good humour and many strokes of genius. He writes cleanly of mod cons - for example, binoculars - with little sense of any Eliotic 'malaise' in the face of technological advance.

Hughes's writing does contain some irony. This is particularly evident in his description of the Space-Bat-Angel-Dragon. It is symptomatic of Hughes's dislike of or indifference to religion. Parents should be aware of this aspect of Hughes's work before passing it on to children.

Scoreboard Bleeding
Ted Hughes (1930- 1978) was poet laureate of England. Barry Moser is an American artist who grew up in Chattanooga and who has illustrated every book from the Bible to the Alice books to _The Wizard of Oz_ (where the Wicked Witch of the West was modeled on Nancy Reagan) to poetry books by Donald Hall. The main problem that I have with Moser's engravings is that there are never quite enough of them.

On page 57 of _The Iron Woman_ (1993), we see Moser's portrait of the smug, self-satisfied factory manager, J. Wells. On page 87, we see a portrait of what has become of him. We are told:

Mr. Wells the giant catfish was now in the swimming pool in his new home. His two little sons spent their time digging worms and dropping them in to see him sucking them off the blue tiles with his great blunt mouth. (86)

There are some other characters who receive some wickedly funny just desserts as well. And yet, we come to realize, that "the whole thing had gotten out of hand" (88). And who is responsible for things getting out of hand? We can see her on Moser's cover to the book-- a female robot who rises out of an English marsh and disrupts the balance of nature:

The black shape was the size of two or three elephants. It looked like a hippopotamus-headed, gigantic dinosaur, dragging itself on all fours up out of a prehistoric tar pit. But now, still like a dinosaur, it sat upright. And all at once it looked human-- immense, but human. Great hands clawed at the head, flinging away swatches of muddy reeds. Then amid gurglings and suckings and with a groaning wail, the thing stood erect. A truly colossal man-shaped statue of black mud, raking itself and groaning, towered over the lonely marsh. (13)

The Iron Woman is discovered and cleaned by a young girl named Jean. The robot wastes little time expressing a philosophy of sorts:

"DESTROY THE POISONERS
THE IGNORANT ONES
...
DESTROY
THE SPOILERS
DESTROY"

This she tries to do-- not always with happy results. Jean calls for Hogarth and the Iron Man in the hope that they can keep the Iron Woman under control. This they are able to do at last. But...

It is a truism that nature is in a state of constant change. So is the world at the end of the novel. Is it change that our young friends will embrace? We do not know. We can only hope so.
The book was bigger than I thought it was going to be which is not a bad thing haha. The Iron Giant is my all time favorite so I can't wait to read The Iron Woman.
