Description - Thomas Hardy by Tim Armstrong

In Thomas Hardy: Selected Poems Tim Armstrong brings together over 180 poems in the first comprehensively annotated selection of Hardy s poetry. Unlike most previous selections, this edition preserves the shape of the poet s career by presenting the poems in the order in which they appeared in the Collected Poems of 1930, rather than re-ordering them thematically. Head notes to each poem give the reader information about its composition, publication, sources and metrical scheme; on-the-page notes list significant variants in Hardy s manuscripts, point out literary and other allusions, and give explanatory glosses. An appendix contains a selection of relevant passages from Hardy s notebooks, letters, and autobiography; and a bibliography suggests further reading.Tim Armstrong s critical Introduction discusses Hardy s career, his poetics, his use of memory and allusion and examines his position in the context of Victorian debates on aesthetics and belief. The generous selection of poems includes many lesser-known poems as well as those which have received most critical commentary, and the important elegiac sequence  Poems of 1912-13 is included in its entirety.
