About this product
- DescriptionThe text is fully antated and includes a separate table of contents for the vel to assist readers in locating specific episodes or passages. Hardy's hand-drawn map of Wessex and the manuscript title page for the first edition of his vel are also included. Hardy and the Novel includes seven poems by Hardy that provide greater insight into his ethos; selections from Michael Millgate's biography of Hardy that depict the relationship between episodes in Tess of the D'Urbervilles and events in the author's life; and excerpts from Grindle and Gatrell's introduction to the 1983 edition that discuss Hardy's revision process in both manuscripts and early printed editions of the vel. Criticism features three contemporary reviews of the vel t printed in the earlier Norton editions, including the first feminist review of Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Also new are A Chat with Mr. Hardy, a hitherto unprinted post-publication interview with the author about his new vel, and five carefully selected critical interpretations. Essays by Elliot B. Gose, Jr., Peter R. Morton, and Gillian Beer address Hardy's debt to Charles Darwin, perhaps the single most important influence on Hardy's thought and imagination; Raymond Williams's essay presents a Marxist perspective; and Adrian Poole discusses the significance of Hardy's wisdom concerning the trouble men's words have with women and the trouble women have with men's words. A Chrology, new to this edition, and a Selected Bibliography are included.
