Thomas Hardy's 'Poetical Matter' Notebook

Edited by Pamela Dalziel and Michael Millgate

  • Meticulously prepared and fully annotated edition of a previously unpublished and almost unknown Thomas Hardy notebook
  • Offers the complete text of a unique late working-notebook devoted specifically to verse and containing an abundance of new ideas about poetry and multiple projections of poems and sequences of poems
  • Includes personal notes from old pocket-books subsequently destroyed
  • Reveals Hardy's extraordinary poetic creativity to within a few weeks of his death at the age of eighty-seven
