Thomas Hardy: The World of His Novels

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published in 2013 by Frances Lincoln. Thomas Hardy: The World of His Novels, by J. B. Bullen.

From the dustjacket blurb:

"Thomas Hardy's Wessex is one of the great literary evocations of place, populated with colourful and dramatic characters. As lovers of his novels and poetry know, this 'partly real, partly dream-country' was firmly rooted in the Dorset into which he had been born. J. B. Bullen explores the relationship between reality and the dream, identifying the places and the settings for Hardy's writing, and showing how and why he shaped them to serve the needs of his characters and plots. The locations may be natural or man-made, but they are rarely fantastic or imaginary. A few have been destroyed and some moved from their original site, but all of them actually existed, and we can still trace most of them on the ground today. Thomas Hardy: The World of his Novels is essential reading for students of literature and for all Hardy enthusiasts who want to gain new insights into his work."

Very good condition hardback with very good dustjacket. A bit of rubbing to the corners of the boards. The dust jacket has some very light handling wear.
