A reading of Jane Austen by Barbara Hardy( )

44 editions published between 1975 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Reading of Jane Austen (first published by Peter Owen in 1975) has established itself with critics and readers as an outstanding contribution to the growing literature on this author, full of fresh and stimulating perceptions. Central to the word is Barbara Hardy's view of Jane Austen as the originator of the modern novel, largely through her creation of a new and flexible medium enabling her to move easily from sympathy to detachment, from one mind to many minds, from solitary scenes to social gatherings

Thomas Hardy : imagining imagination : Hardy's poetry and fiction by Barbara Hardy( )

24 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author offers close readings of Thomas Hardy's poetry and novels, regarding these as expressive forms of everyday and professional acts of the imagination. Hardy is placed in the long tradition of writers who subject is not art but imagination and whose most interesting aesthetic introspectionÆs, like those of Jane Austen and George Eliot, are oblique or sub-textual. So what the reader follows here is Hardy's imagining of imagination in his elegies and nature poems and in his major characters from Gabriel Oak to Tess and Jude. The themes and forms examined by Barbara Hardy include narrative
George Eliot : a critic's biography by Barbara Hardy( )

17 editions published between 1971 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Eliot (1819-1880) was one of the leading writers of the Victorian period and she remains one of Britain's greatest novelists. This brief biography offers new insights into Eliot's life and work focusing on the themes, patterns, relationships, feelings and language common to both her life and writing. Barbara Hardy discusses Eliot's relations with parents and siblings, her brave but joyful unmarried partnership with George Henry Lewes, her friendships and her late brief marriage to the younger John Cross. Setting her life and fiction side by side, Hardy reveals Eliot's ideas about society, home, foreignness, nature, gender, religion, sex, illness and death and her experiences as translator, journalist, editor and novelist. -- From publisher's description
Dickens and creativity by Barbara Hardy( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph covers Dickens and creativity, analysing both his discussion of creativity and imagination and illustrations in his work. Charles Dickens' experience and imagining of creativity is at the heart of his self-awareness, subject-matter and narrative. His intelligence works intuitively rather than conceptually and ideas about imagination often emerge informally in personal letters and implicitly through characters, language and story. His self-analysis and reflexive tendency are embedded in his styles and forms of narrative and dialogue, images of normality, madness, extremity, subver

Middlemarch; critical approaches to the novel by Barbara Hardy( Book )

31 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Anglo-American collection of essays on Middlemarch comprises a many-faceted study of a great and much-discussed novel. Written by scholars on both sides of the Atlantic who are linked by a close and concentrated interest in the novel, this group of complementary and interrelated studies is representative of its time, both in its range and in the way it looks back and ahead in methods and conclusions. It mixes formal analysis and doubts about formal analysis; studies of background and studies of foreground; and proffers examples of linguistic criticism of a relaxed and eclectic kind. Reade
The appropriate form : an essay on the novel by Barbara Hardy( Book )

44 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this substantial essay on the novel (first published in 1964) Barbara Hardy distinguishes three integral aspects of the art of fiction - story, the working-out of a moral problem, and ""truthfulness"", defined as ""the lively representation of reality"". From this standpoint she discusses and elucidates some characteristic excellences and limitations of a number of major novels and novelists, including Defoe, Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, Meredith, James, Hardy, E.M. Forster, and D.H. Lawrence
Tellers and listeners : the narrative imagination by Barbara Hardy( Book )

17 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nature, not art, makes us all story-tellers. Daily and nightly we devise fictions and chronicles, calling some of them daydreams or dreams, some of them nightmares, some of them truths, records, reports and plans. The object of this book is to look at these natural narrative forms and themes, which have been neglected by critics but recognized by narrative artists, using literary criticism in order to argue the limits and limitations of literature. Although Hardy's suggestions about narrative apply broadly to all artistic forms, in the second part of the book she approaches the subject through a detailed analysis of three authors, Dickens, Hardy and Joyce, all profound and far-reaching analysts of narrative structures and values

The advantage of lyric : essays on feeling in poetry by Barbara Hardy( Book )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the title essay, Professor Hardy argues for the special advantage of lyric over other other literary genres in conveying intense private feelings publicly. She then gives detailed consideraton to the lyric poetry of John Donne, Arthur Hugh Clough, and a group of poets central to the modernist canon: Hopkins, Yeats, Aden, Dylan Thomas, and Sylvia Plath. Those interested in W.H. Auden will find the book of particular value, since Auden occupies a central place in it. W.H. Auden has frequently been held up as the modern example par excellence of a 'public poet' whose works betray relatively li
Ivy Compton-Burnett by Barbara Hardy( )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ivy Compton-Burnett is a strikingly original novelist, writing conversation-novels in which talk is the medium and subject. She is innovative like Joyce and Woolf but more accessible and less theoretical, a modernist unawares. This re-valuation of a neglected artist is a close analysis of forms, ideas and language in novels which range from her first conventionally moral love-story, Dolores, which she tried to suppress, to startling stories about landed gentry in Victorian and Edwardian England"--Page [4] of cover

Moral art of Dickens by Barbara Hardy( )

11 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Barbara Hardy is a noted critic of nineteenth-century fiction but her essays on Dickens have hitherto been scattered widely among critical journals and anthologies. The seven studies she has here collected, introduced, and in part revised, together make up a sustained exploration of the moral concern which informs the novelist's work and gives to his portrayal of society and the individual its unique quality. A general discussion of the moral nature of Dickens' art leads to a study of patterns of change and conversion and this in turn to a close examination of four representative nov
