The essays collected in Celebrating Thomas Hardy include both scholarly studies by leading academics and personal appreciations by perceptive readers and writers. The volume is therefore both a substantial contribution to Hardy studies, which will be valuable to students and academics, and an approachable companion to Hardy for enthusiasts. Responding with a wide variety of subjects and approaches to Hardy's varied 'voices', the volume particularly emphasises Hardy's connections with other writers, from John Clare to Toni Morrison.
