Description
Lifting the shroud of secrecy that Thomas Hardy deliberately drew over his life, Andrew Norman here explores the anguish of the great novelist and poet's personal life, and seeks to determine how it influenced such masterpieces as Jude the Obscure and Tess of the d'Urbervilles. Shy to a fault, Hardy surrounded his house with a dense curtain of trees, shunned publicity and reporters, and tended to slip quietly out of the back door when visitors arrived unexpectedly. Norman—also the biographer of Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and Arthur Conan Doyle—finds particularly intriguing the behavior Hardy exhibited after the death of his first wife Emma, when he burned, page by page, a manuscript of hers entitled What I think of my husband, and he finds evidence that Emma may have suffered from schizophrenia and loved another man.
