Hardy: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Guerard, Albert J., Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Albert Guerard, Donald Davidson, Morton Dauwen Zabel, D. H. Lawrence, John Hollowan, Dorothy Van Ghent, John Paterson, A. Alvarez, Delmore Schwartz, W. H. Auden, David Perkins, and Samuel Hynes--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Thomas Hardy. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. The essays deal with the traditional basis of Hardy's fiction, Hardy in defense of his art, the major fiction, the women in his novels, poetry and belief in Hardy, literature transference, and the poetry of isolation. A chronology of important dates in Hardy's life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and a bibliography of works on Hardy complete the volume. (LL)
