This up-to-date and highly informative biography contains new disclosures and interpretations of evidence, and observes commendable proportions, neglecting nothing significant in Hardy's early years, and providing the most relevant details on his later life. It draws from innumerable sources, including all his published writings (not least the poems), biographies of him and of contemporaries, correspondence of friends and acquaintances, Emma Hardy's diaries, and many unpublished letters from her and Florence Hardy.

The division between him and Emma is a dominant issue. On this and elsewhere, wherever uncertainty is inherent, the author provides the available evidence without any fictional assertion. His work is well organized, cogent, and full of interest

They suggest that 'his formative thought, the product of a period of conflict between new scientific philosophy and humanism on the one hand, and traditional Christian theology combined with Victorian restraints on the other, developed when England was not as intellectually provincial as Matthew Arnold had affirmed. Above all, they illustrate the extent to which the creative imaginat
