Abstract“Pursuit of Aesthetic Pulchritude: A Delve into Ted Hughes’ “Salmon-taking Times” and “Low Water”” surfaces the aesthetic pulchritude of nature that the poet has perceived in his scenic world. The present research paper analyses “Salmon-taking Times” and “Low Water” from River, a dexterous and passionate chronicle of nature, to discover the facets of aesthetic beauty. The principles of Aestheticism have been employed to discover the pulchritude that Hughes has relished in the natural world. This research paper has applied the tenets of Immanuel Kant’s Aestheticism to analyse the selected poems. Ted Hughes, ranked as one of the best poets of 20th century British literature, is an ardent lover of nature who has vindicated the notion of the eminent Aesthetic critic Theodor W. Adorno.
