Overview

From reviews of previous volumes: "Has the qualities that a great edition should have: it is meticulously thorough and accurate, and its aids to the reader are clear and comprehensive."—Times Literary Supplement. "An indispensable work of scholarship."—Nineteenth-Century Fiction. The correspondents in this volume range widely—from Edmund Gosse and Walter de la Mare to Ezra Pound—and the letters show an aging Hardy still deeply involved in all aspects of his professional life The nearly 700 letters, most of which have never been published, are supplemented by scrupulous annotation and extensive cross-referencing, by a chronology covering Hardy's entire career, and by an index of correspondents included in this volume.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Volume VI lives up to the superb quality of its predecessors, and for the same reasons: meticulousness, elegance of annotative phrasing and typography, and easily carried authoritativeness."—English Literature in Transition

"A project completed with the authority and professionalism that distinguish this edition tends to conceal its own achievement, filling a void so completely as to encourage forgetfulness of its recent extent." ELT
