Résumé d'Ambivalence in hardy a study of his attitude towards women

This book re-examines the critical debate regarding Hardy s attitude to women: apologist or misogynist? With the help of manuscript evidence and references to Hardy s autobiography, letters, literary notebooks, marginalia, and the letters of his wives, this book combines a biographical approach with a feminist reading. Significant space is devoted to the minor novels, the short stories, and to Hardy s real life literary relations with his contemporary women writers, his protégées and his two scribbling wives, to balance the hitherto exclusive focus on the major novels
