Thomas Hardy and the proper study of mankind by Simon Gatrell( Book )
12 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 669 libraries worldwide
Simon Gatrell offers a fresh and stimulating exploration of Hardy's account in fiction of the individual man or woman's relationship with various aspects of the encompassing world - with other men and women, with the aggregation known as society, with the natural and artificial environment, and with the supernatural. He focuses on the importance of community in Hardy's fiction, especially on the ability of rural villages and towns to withstand the stresses of industrialized agriculture and the national standardization of education and culture. He also proposes that the full titles Hardy gave to a number of his novels have not been sufficiently attended to as signs instinct with meaning. The title of the book alludes, in part, to Pope's Essay on Man. Simon Gatrell writes, "In his examination of humankind Pope considers how we stand as individuals in relation to divine power, to Nature, and to each other. It is my suggestion that Hardy considers essentially the same questions in his novels: what external to us causes things to happen - God, fate, destiny, the Immanent Will? how do individuals stand in relation to their environment [and] society? and what part do individuals' own natures play in what occurs to them?" Thomas Hardy and the Proper Study of Mankind concentrates on eight of Hardy's fourteen novels, ranging from the early Under the Greenwood Tree, through neglected middle-period works like Two on a Tower, to the final masterpieces Tess of the d' Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure. Of particular note is the author's provocatively imaginative reconstruction of the story of Angel Clare, which follows the chapter on Tess. There are also chapters on the role dance plays in Hardy's fiction and on how his writing encompasses the wider world beyond Wessex and England. A feature of the critical inquiry is the illumination afforded by the study of Hardy's often substantial revisions

Thomas Hardy's vision of Wessex by Simon Gatrell( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 242 libraries worldwide
"Hardy's Wessex has been much written about, but all the guidebooks and academic studies are based on Wessex as it stood when Hardy, at the age of 72, had completed his transformation of the place. When he began writing in the 1860s, Wessex wasn't even a gleam in his eye. This book traces each step in the evolution of his vision of Wessex in his novels, stories and poems, and suggests how, at several key moments in his career, Wessex might have taken a different direction. There are a number of maps, and reproductions of significant illustrations included in the body of the book."--Jacket
English literature and the wider world ( Book )
6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 225 libraries worldwide
Far from the madding crowd : an authoritative text, backgrounds, criticism by Thomas Hardy( Book )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
Far from the Madding Crowd was the first of Hardy's novels to apply the name of Wessex to the landscape of south-west England, and the first to gain him widespread popularity as a novelist. When the beautiful and spirited Bathsheba Everdene inherits her own farm, she attracts three very different suitors; the seemingly commonplace man-of-the-soil Gabriel Oak, the dashing young soldier Francis Troy, and the respectable, middle-aged Farmer Boldwood. Her choice, and the tragedy it provokes, lie at the centre of Hardy's ambivalent story. This edition presents a new text of the novel restoring several manuscript passages never before published with the novel and many of the 1901 revisions missing from nearly all modern versions
