23 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection covers the range of Thomas Hardy's works and their social and intellectual contexts, providing a comprehensive introduction to Hardy's life and times. Featuring short, lively contributions from forty-four international scholars, the volume explores the processes by which Hardy the man became Hardy the published writer; the changing critical responses to his work; his response to the social and political challenges of his time; his engagement with contemporary intellectual debate; and his legacy in the twentieth century and after. Emphasising the subtle and ongoing interaction between Hardy's life, his creative achievement and the unique historical moment, the collection also examines Hardy's relationship to such issues as class, education, folklore, archaeology and anthropology, evolution, marriage and masculinity, empire and the arts. A valuable contextual reference for scholars of Victorian and modernist literature, the collection will also prove accessible for the general reader of Hardy"--

The Victorian novel and masculinity by Phillip Mallett( Book )

15 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The old ideal of Manhood has grown obsolete, ' wrote Thomas Carlyle in 1831, 'and the new is still invisible to us.' The essays in this volume explore the way Victorian novelists tried to answer the question of what it meant to 'be a man': how manhood was learned, sustained, broken, or restored, and how the idea of the manly was shaped by class, schooling, region and religion, and by scientific and medical debate. Topics covered include the playful subversion of gender roles in the early writings of Charlotte Brontèˆ; changing patterns of working class masculinity in London and Manchester; Dickens and the nurturing male; boyhood and girlhood in Eliot's The Mill on the Floss; the challenge to patriarchy in sensation fiction; manhood, imperialism and the adventure novel; masculinity and aestheticism; Hardy's reluctant, failed, or damaged men; and Conrad's studies of men isolated or divided against themselves"--

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the small Wessex village of Mellstock, the pretty young schoolmistress Fancy Day finds herself romantically entangled with three different men. Local lad and choir member Dick Dewy has to compete for her affections with a prosperous farmer and the new vicar, the Reverend Maybold. Maybold disrupts parish life and custom when he decides to replace the three generations of singers and instrumentalists who make up the church choir with a modern organ, to be played by Fancy herself. The rivalries and intrigues that follow are played out with gentle humour against an untouched rural scene that will not long survive. Looking back to the 1840s, and the world Hardy remembered as a child, Under the Greenwood Tree brings past and present, community and individual, loss and gain into perspective"--From back cover
