Description

In his poetry, Thomas Hardy describes himself as posthumous, as rekindling the cinders of passion, as the guardian of the dead forgotten by history and as haunted by ghosts, particularly the spectre of the lost child (as in the rumour that he fathered a child in the 1860s). Using Derrida, Abraham and Torok and other theorists, and referring to Victorian debates on materialism, this book investigates ghostliness, historicity and memory in Hardy's poetry.
