Iron Man Summary

Iron Man by Ted Hughes

'Starts superbly with a clanking iron giant toppling from a cliff and lying smashed and scattered on the rocks below. Then his various parts get up and search for each other. Hughes has never written more compellingly.' Robert Nye, The Times 'A weird, compelling fantasy told in a style of such ringing clarity that not one of its fearsome points can possibly be missed.' Naomi Lewis, Listener
