MEDIA REVIEWS

Comments:

"Of all the great Victorian novelists, Hardy is the one who consistently requires most annotation and careful contextual placing. The density of regional reference, the often complex composition, publication and reception histories, the author's vexed relationship with his age-all call for tactful but learned editing. The noted Victorian scholar Norman Page supplies this admirably for Broadview Press's Mayor of Casterbridge. This is the edition I shall use and prescribe in the future." - John Sutherland, University of London

“Drama, excitement and intrigue”

When I began this book I have to admit that I didn't think the three words I'd be using to describe it would be drama, excitement and intrigue . In fact, I really had no intention of reading this book at all... More
