Dickens and creativity by Barbara Nathan Hardy( Computer File )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,153 libraries worldwide
This monograph covers Dickens and creativity, analysing both his discussion of creativity and imagination and illustrations in his work.Charles Dickens' experience and imagining of creativity is at the heart of his self-awareness, subject-matter and narrative. His intelligence works intuitively rather than conceptually and ideas about imagination often emerge informally in personal letters and implicitly through characters, language and story. His self-analysis and reflexive tendency are embedded in his styles and forms of narrative and dialogue, images of normality, madness, extremity, subver
George Eliot a critic's biography by Barbara Nathan Hardy( file )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,069 libraries worldwide
George Eliot (1819-1880) was one of the leading writers of the Victorian period and she remains one of Britain's greatest novelists. This brief life offers new insights into Eliot's life and work focusing on the themes, patterns, relationships, feelings and language common to both her life and writing. Barbara Hardy discusses Eliot's relations with parents and siblings, her brave but joyful unmarried partnership with George Henry Lewes, her friendships and her late brief marriage to the younger John Cross. Setting her life and fiction side by side, Hardy reveals Eliot's ideas about society, ho
Thomas Hardy imagining imagination : Hardy's poetry and fiction by Barbara Nathan Hardy( file )
12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,068 libraries worldwide
The author offers close readings of Thomas Hardy's poetry and novels, regarding these as expressive forms of everyday and professional acts of the imagination. Hardy is placed in the long tradition of writers who subject is not art but imagination and whose most interesting aesthetic introspectionÆs, like those of Jane Austen and George Eliot, are oblique or sub-textual. So what the reader follows here is Hardy's imagining of imagination in his elegies and nature poems and in his major characters from Gabriel Oak to Tess and Jude. The themes and forms examined by Barbara Hardy include narrative
The appropriate form; an essay on the novel by Barbara Nathan Hardy( Book )
26 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and held by 1,049 libraries worldwide
In this substantial essay on the novel (first published in 1964) Barbara Hardy distinguishes three integral aspects of the art of fiction - story, the working-out of a moral problem, and ""truthfulness"", defined as ""the lively representation of reality"". From this standpoint she discusses and elucidates some characteristic excellences and limitations of a number of major novels and novelists, including Defoe, Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, Meredith, James, Hardy, E.M. Forster, and D.H. Lawrence
Tellers and listeners : the narrative imagination by Barbara Nathan Hardy( Book )
14 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 1,006 libraries worldwide
Nature, not art, makes us all story-tellers. Daily and nightly we devise fictions and chronicles, calling some of them daydreams or dreams, some of them nightmares, some of them truths, records, reports and plans. The object of this book is to look at these natural narrative forms and themes, which have been neglected by critics but recognized by narrative artists, using literary criticism in order to argue the limits and limitations of literature. Although Hardy's suggestions about narrative apply broadly to all artistic forms, in the second part of the book she approaches the subject through

Middlemarch; critical approaches to the novel by Barbara Nathan Hardy( Book )
18 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and held by 902 libraries worldwide
This Anglo-American collection of essays on Middlemarch comprises a many-faceted study of a great and much-discussed novel. Written by scholars on both sides of the Atlantic who are linked by a close and concentrated interest in the novel, this group of complementary and interrelated studies is representative of its time, both in its range and in the way it looks back and ahead in methods and conclusions. It mixes formal analysis and doubts about formal analysis; studies of background and studies of foreground; and proffers examples of linguistic criticism of a relaxed and eclectic kind. Reade
The advantage of lyric : essays on feeling in poetry by Barbara Nathan Hardy( Book )
14 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and held by 902 libraries worldwide
In the title essay, Professor Hardy argues for the special advantage of lyric over other other literary genres in conveying intense private feelings publicly. She then gives detailed consideraton to the lyric poetry of John Donne, Arthur Hugh Clough, and a group of poets central to the modernist canon: Hopkins, Yeats, Aden, Dylan Thomas, and Sylvia Plath. Those interested in W.H. Auden will find the book of particular value, since Auden occupies a central place in it. W.H. Auden has frequently been held up as the modern example par excellence of a 'public poet' whose works betray relatively li
