9780192814722: Thomas Hardy: A Biography (Oxford Paperbacks)

This full-scale biography of Thomas Hardy presents not only the richest, most comprehensive account of his life available, but also the most balanced and sympathetic view of Hardy as a man and as an artist. Michael Millgate has drawn extensively on previously unknown materials, including diaries, notebooks, letters, local records, and contemporary newspapers, and on his experience as co-editor of The Collected Letters of Thomas Hardy.

About the Author:


Michael Millgate was born in England and educated at Cambridge University, before doing a PhD in American literature at Leeds. He moved to the University of Toronto in 1967, where he devoted his time to studying the life and works of Thomas Hardy. He has edited seven volumes of Hardy's letters, and the selected letters of his wives.

Review:


"A splendid biography....Millgate is the kind of biographer writers dream of. He gives us all the necessary details, but none of the gratuitous ones. While he doesn't attempt to psychoanalyze Hardy, he gets as close to him as he can by legitimate means."--The New York Times


"It is likely to be the biography of choice for ordinary readers who require only one life of Hardy....Millgate also does more...than anyone writing about Hardy previously has done to suggest possible answers to the primary question of what sustained this writer whose reputation is growing steadily again now after a period of decline."--The Yale Review
