Michael Millgate, University Professor of English Emeritus at the University of Toronto is widely recognized as the worlds foremost Thomas Hardy scholar. His contributions to the study of Hardy over more than three decades include his recently revisited biography, the seven volume edition of Hardys collected letters, and the influential critical study Thomas Hardy: His Career as a Novelist.In Thomas Hardy Reappraised, editor Keith Wilson pays tribute to Millgates many contributions to Hardy studies by bringing together new work by fifteen of the worlds most eminent Hardy scholars.

These essays address questions of biblical and literary allusiveness, cultural, historical, and philosophical context, narrative and poetic theory and practice, as well as Hardys place in the modern world and his influence on younger writers. Together, the contributors offer one of the most significant reappraisals of Hardys work to have appeared since Michael Millgate helped to transform Hardy studies.

They offer graphic testimony to Hardys enduring popularity and importance.Contributors:Pamela DalzielMary RimmerDennis TaylorBarbara HardyU.C. KnoepflmacherMarjorie GarsonRuth Bernard YeazellSimon GatrellJ. Hillis MillerGeorge LevineJeremy V.
