Introduces the readers to the novel and contemporary perspectives through critical essays.

This critical edition of Thomas Hardy's widely taught 1891 British Victorian novel reprints the authoritative second impression of the 1920 Wessex edition together with critical essays that approach the work from five contemporary critical perspectives, and highly praised editorial apparatus that introduces the readers to the novel and the perspectives. The five essays illustrate cultural criticism, deconstruction, feminist and gender criticism, the new historicism, and reader-response criticism.
