About this product
- DescriptionThis study examines Hardy's prolonged struggle with his contemporary readers, whose bourgeois values he despised. Initially content to compromise, to provide them with congenial entertainment, Hardy resorted at first to strategies of subversion, smuggling material past his editors and finally to outspoken attack. Professor T. R. Wright attempts to balance historical research into the response of 'actual' readers and the material conditions of publishing with literary-critical analysis of the 'implied' reader inscribed in the vels themselves.
- Author BiographyT.R. WRIGHT studied at Oxford and Princeton before becoming Professor of English Literature at the University of Newcastle. His books include The Religion of Humanity, Theology and Literature, Hardy and the Erotic, George Eliot's Middlemarch and D.H. Lawrence and the Bible.
