Description
Thomas Hardy's Wessex is one of the great literary evocations of place, populated with colorful and dramatic characters; as his admirers know, this "partly real, partly dream-country" was firmly rooted in the Dorset into which he had been born. Here J.B. Bullen explores the relationship between reality and the dream, identifying the places and the settings for Hardy's writing, and showing how and why he shaped them to serve the needs of his characters and plots. While the locations may have been natural or manmade, they were rarely fantastic or imaginary; a few have been destroyed and some moved from their original sites, but all of them actually existed once, and Bullen here, as he tells us in his introduction, examines "how Hardy observed and recorded, often with scrupulous fondness, the details of the villages, forests and landscapes of Dorset and beyond and made them into the dream-country of Wessex."
