TITLE: Molly Lefebure, Thomas Hardy’s World

IBSN: 1858682452


PUBLISHED: October 2002 

TYPE: Hardcover

SYNOPSIS: The resurgence of Hardy's popularity today is partly due to the film and television adaptations of Far From the Maddening Crowd (with Julie Christie and Alan Bates) and the Academy Award-winning Tess (with Nastassja Kinski), The Woodlanders, Jude, Return of the Native and A Pair of Blue Eyes. Many film stills and vintage photographs combine with Lefebure's erudite text to illustrate Victorian and Edwardian England. Hardy's family background, his development as a writer, his inspirations, his lovers and wives, present a full portrait of the man, his time, and his influence on our time.
