This review is from: Thomas Hardy: The World of his Novels (Hardcover)
A wonderful book: a carefully researched, and beautifully illustrated guide to the world of Hardy's novels.
With his deep understanding of the Victorian world, J B Bullen places Hardy's novels in their cultural, social and geographical context, skilfully drawing connections between Hardy's textual descriptions and the buildings and works of art and music, which inspired him - especially the paintings of J M W Turner.
Well written; easy to read - a 'must have' for anyone with an interest in Thomas Hardy or wanting to learn more about Hardy.
