Thomas Hardy, a biography revisited by Michael Millgate( Book )
12 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,536 libraries worldwide
"Michael Millgate's biography of Thomas Hardy, great novelist and poet, was first published in 1982. Much new information about Hardy has since become available, often in volumes edited or co-edited by Millgate himself, and many established assumptions have been challenged and revolutionized by scholarly research. In this extensively revised, fully reconsidered, and considerably expanded new edition the world's leading Hardy scholar draws not only upon these new materials but upon an understanding of Hardy gained from long immersion in the study of his life and work. Many large and small aspects of Hardy's life are here freshly illuminated, including his family background, his fumbling self-education as a poet, his difficult relations with his first wife and hers with his family, his sexual infatuations, his secret collaborations with aspiring women writers, his clandestine composition of his own official biography, and the memory-invoking techniques by which he sustained his remarkable creativity into extreme old age. Thomas Hardy: A Biography Revisited will become the standard life of Hardy for a new generation."--BOOK JACKET

Testamentary acts : Browning, Tennyson, James, Hardy by Michael Millgate( Book )
12 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 528 libraries worldwide
The testamentary acts of Michael Millgate's title are those strategies of self-protection and self-projection by which authors attempt in old age to enhance posterity's view of themselves and their work. The four figures examined in detail here--Robert Browning, Alfred Tennyson, Henry James, and Thomas Hardy--sought to maintain posthumous control over their personal privacy and the integrity of their finally approved texts by, for example, destroying documents, writing autobiographies, revising their earlier works and supplying them with retrospective prefaces, and publishing so-called 'collected' editions that in fact omitted items they no longer wished to preserve. Such strategies, though widely practised by writers, may yield altogether unanticipated results, and this study also examines the difficult role of such literary executors as Pen Browning, Hallam Tennyson, and Florence Hardy, called upon to exercise a delegated, hence compromised, authority. A concluding chapter gives briefer consideration to the wills and wishes of many other literary figures, from Samuel Johnson to Walt Whitman to Philip Larkin, and argues that biographers, editors, and readers in general need to be more attentive to these authorial end-games--to the often disregarded final years of writers and to the aims and consequences of their explicit and implicit testamentary acts

Thomas Hardy's public voice : the essays, speeches, and miscellaneous prose by Thomas Hardy( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 396 libraries worldwide
"Thomas Hardy has generally been viewed as an intensely private figure, shy of publicity and even of people, self-isolated in his Dorsetshire home, and much more cautious and conservative in his personal outlook than might be expected of the author of Tess of the D'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure. 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."--BOOK JACKET

Letters of Emma and Florence Hardy by Emma Lavinia Gifford Hardy( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 272 libraries worldwide
It has been said that both Thomas Hardy's wives were livelier letter-writers than he was himself. They were certainly less discreet, especially on the subject of their marital grievances, with the result that Hardy's intensely private life and personality are uniquely illuminated in the letters of the two remarkable but very different women who knew him best. Inevitably overshadowed by their husband during their lifetimes, their distinctive voices - together with their particular concerns and their opinions on many other subjects beside their husband - now clearly sound throughout this meticulously edited and fully annotated selection of their letters
Thomas Hardy reappraised : essays in honour of Michael Millgate ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 258 libraries worldwide
"In Thomas Hardy Reappraised, editor Keith Wilson pays tribute to Millgate's many contributions to Hardy studies by bringing together new work by fifteen of the world's most eminent. Hardy scholars. These essays address questions of biblical and literary allusiveness, cultural, historical, and philosophical context, narrative and poetic theory and practice, as well as Hardy's place in the modern world and his influence on younger writers. Together, the contributors offer one of the most significant reappraisals of Hardy's work to have appeared since Michael Millgate helped to transform Hardy studies. They offer graphic testimony to Hardy's enduring popularity and importance."--Jacket

One of Faulkner's comic masterpieces, The Reivers is a picaresque that tells of three unlikely car thieves from rural Mississippi. Eleven-year-old Lucius Priest is persuaded by Boon Hogganbeck, one of his family's retainers, to steal his grandfather's car and make a trip to Memphis. The Priests' black coachman, Ned McCaslin, stows away, and the three of them are off on a heroic odyssey, for which they are all ill-equipped, that ends at Miss Reba's bordello in Memphis. From there a series of wild misadventures ensues--involving horse smuggling, trainmen, sheriffs' deputies, and jail
