Palgrave Advances in Thomas Hardy Studies

by Phillip Mallett

Part of the Palgrave Advances Series

Palgrave Advances in Thomas Hardy Studies Synopsis

Palgrave Advances in Thomas Hardy Studies explores the key issues in the ongoing and lively debate about Thomas Hardy's work as a novelist and poet. In twelve newly-commissioned essays, distinguished scholars from both sides of the Atlantic review, take issue with and take forward the most recent and significant research on Thomas Hardy.

Palgrave Advances in Thomas Hardy Studies Press Reviews

'Most of the essays in this collection are driven by their authors' knowledge of Hardy and adorned by their unusually (for academicians) approachable prose styles. The intention of the collection, and of most of the essays, is to encourage readers and other sorts of students to develop their own perspectives and entry-points into the fiction and (to a lesser extent) the poetry. This intention is carried through to a strong degree. Undergraduate and graduate students, and professional readers will find many points of departure in this book. Obviously, given the book's intention and its achievement, readers who are drawn to Hardy will be stimulated to various thoughts, and some of them will be controversial. In short, this collection is worth the money to anyone who admires Hardy.' - Professor Dale Kramer, University of Oregon (and Editor of the Cambridge Companion to Thomas Hardy )
