Obituary Note: Gerald Hughes

Gerald Hughes, brother of the poet Ted Hughes "and an important influence on his work," died August 6, the Guardian reported. He was 95. "Gerald was a moderately accomplished amateur painter, but his only claim to fame was, inevitably, as the poet's brother. This led to him being pestered by biographers, a nuisance to which he put a stop with the memoir [Ted and I: A Brother's Memoir]--duly polished by his sister Olwyn--that he published in 2012," the Guardian wrote.
