Summary
  • "This book studies the ways Hardy writes about music, and argues that this focus allows for a close and varied investigation of the affective dimensions of his poetry and fiction, and his recurrent preoccupations with time, community and love." "Although the book does incorporate some biographical detail about Thomas Hardy's life-long passion for playing and collecting music, it predominantly works through close reading, while also drawing, at points, on literary theoretical texts where these offer ways of articulating the broad questions of literary convention and representation that arise."--Jacket
