Synopsis

Who's Who in Thomas Hardy by Huw Barker Rahane

This guide presents for the first time this century a catalogue listing the characters in the fiction of Thomas Hardy. In minutes, the reader can find a summary of who does what and in which work - useful for students, scholars, and lovers of Hardy everywhere. The fruit of a lifetime of study, journalist Huw Barker Rahane has created a lively and concise register of colourful men and women, dramatically bringing out Hardy's constant theme of sexual desire and fulfilment - and the consequences where the balance is not struck. The book presents an unrivalled opportunity to rediscover painlessly many gripping and half-forgotten works, some of them quite short, all catalogued here alongside old mainstays such as The Mayor of Casterbridge and Jude the Obscure . Thanks to the book's cool, informal style, the reader will be encouraged to go back to the original and uniquely rich world of Hardy's imagination.
