Thomas Hardy's Public Voice: The Essays, Speeches, and Miscellaneous Prose

Thomas Hardy's Public Voice: The Essays, Speeches, and Miscellaneous Prose Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thomas Hardy has generally been viewed as an intensely private figure, shy of publicity and even of people. What the present volume reveals is that Hardy's public utterances, addressed to a wide range of literary, social, and political issues, were far more numerous and various than has previously been imagined. His essays, speeches, and other acknowledged pieces, both formal and informal, are here fully described, edited, and annotated, together with the letters he wrote to newspapers and the many unsigned items, from obituaries to clandestine contributions to literary gossip-columns, that have now been securely or tentatively identified.
