It is accompanied by over five hundred explanatory footnotes, identifying Hardy's allusions, glossing dialect words, and providing essential information about the historical background. New to the Second Edition are the twelve illustrations that accompanied the novel's first serial publication, the "Sketch Map of the Scene of the Story" drawn by Hardy for the 1878 edition, and the "Map of the Wessex of the Novels and Poems" from the 1912 Macmillan Edition of The Mayor of Casterbridge, which helps place the story in its fictional setting." ""Backgrounds and Contexts" provides a "Glossary of Dialect Words" that will help students understand the unfamiliar language used in the novel. Four essays on the textual and publication history of the novel, all new to this edition, are by Hardy, Simon Gatrell, Andrew Nash, and Phillip Mallett. Also collected here all are six of Hardy's nonfictional writings, five of which are new to this edition." ""Criticism" includes "Contemporary Reception" and "Modern Criticism" sections; the latter contains nine assessments - three are printed in this Norton Critical Edition for the first time. A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.-Dust jacket."@en ;
