“[Ted Hughes] told [Sylvia Plath] he had ‘obligations’ in the next room, another Cambridge student named Shirley, and that he was working in London and earning £10 a week reading scripts for J. Arthur Rank. Then, suddenly, he leant towards [Plath] and kissed her ‘bang smash on the mouth’.

As he did so he ripped the red hairband  from her head and ravished her with such force that her silver earrings came unclipped. He moved down to kiss her neck, and Plath bit him ‘long and hard’ on the cheek. When the couple emerged from the room, blood was pouring down his face.”

Sylvia Plath In Love, The Daily Mail – describing how Hughes and Plath first met.
