AUTHOR: Andrew Norman
Thomas Hardy: Behind the Inscrutable Smile
Thomas Hardy: Behind the Inscrutable Smile
  • Description
  • Related

Thomas Hardy was shy to a fault. He surrounded his house with a dense blanket of trees; he took immense pains to disguise the true identities of the characters in his novels and the places they frequented; and in his later years he destroyed not only his own diaries, notebooks and letters but also those of his first wife, Emma.

The purpose of this deeply insightful book is to pierce the veil of secrecy which Hardy drew deliberately over his private life. Through a careful investigation of Hardy's psychology and his writings, his novels and his poetry, and his sometimes traumatic relationships, Andrew Norman discovers the true Thomas Hardy - the man behind the inscrutable smile!

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 978 184114 324 8, paperback, 206x148mm, 160 pages. Published May 2004.
