A Tennyson companion : life and works by F. B Pinion( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though it gives separate treatment to genres such as idylls, epistolary poems, and popular dramatic monologues, this major assessment of Tennyson's work is broadly chronological. His variety of interest and the excellence of his later poetry are emphasized (most of the significant contributions to Idylls of the King belong to the final period of its development). Observing due proportion as far as possible, this perceptive and unusually comprehensive survey assesses the literary merits of Tennyson and the modern significance of his ideas. Its value is enhanced by a detailed biographical introduction and a generous selection of illustrations

14 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Hardy : his life and friends by F. B Pinion( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This up-to-date and highly informative biography contains new disclosures and interpretations of evidence, and observes commendable proportions, neglecting nothing significant in Hardy's early years, and providing the most relevant details on his later life. It draws from innumerable sources, including all his published writings (not least the poems), biographies of him and of contemporaries, correspondence of friends and acquaintances, Emma Hardy's diaries, and many unpublished letters from her and Florence Hardy. Except for brief background introductions which indicate how some of Hardy's friends (ranging chronologically from William Barnes and Horace Moule to Colonel Lawrence and Siegfried Sassoon) influenced his career or enriched his life, this biography keeps very closely in touch with him and his literary work and interests. The division between him and Emma is a dominant issue. On this and elsewhere, wherever uncertainty is inherent, the author provides the available evidence without any fictional assertion. His work is well organized, cogent, and full of interest

Hardy the writer by F. B Pinion( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays are arranged progressively to indicate Hardy's development as a writer and thinker, and to present the major aspects of his work as a whole, linking the poetry and the prose at all appropriate stages. They suggest that 'his formative thought, the product of a period of conflict between new scientific philosophy and humanism on the one hand, and traditional Christian theology combined with Victorian restraints on the other, developed when England was not as intellectually provincial as Matthew Arnold had affirmed. Above all, they illustrate the extent to which the creative imagination and the style of Hardy the writer were stimulated and strengthened by literary influences ... '. Important references are made throughout to his Life and Collected Letters
