Item description for Thomas Hardy (Life&Times) by Tim Dolin...
Thomas Hardy was born just a few years after Queen Victoria came to the throne and died just a few years before Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. His life spanned both the precipitous rise and gradual decline of industrial Britain, the ages of capital and empire, and the march of human progress that was so brutally shattered by the first world war. As a contemporary of Arnold, Meredith, Tennyson and Browning, he was the last of the great Victorians, and among the moderns: ahead of his time, he influenced Lawrence, Pound, Woolf and many others.
Dolins biography draws connections between biographical events, artistic concerns, ideas, the literary and cultural world, and the great dramas of the agedemocracy, womens rights, mass society, science, imperialism, and war. In doing so, it will reveal a different Hardya man intimately and dynamically engaged with the worlds of politics, ideas, and culture as well as the world of rural Wessex: a man who fused a powerfully localized imagination with a cosmopolitan intellect.
