The Psychology of Hardy's Novels: The Nervous and the Statuesque
Thomas Hardy has remained a curiously marginal figure in the history of the novel. Where he has been discussed, it has usually been in terms of his "pessimistic" Wletanschauung, its relation to "rural questions". The truth is that we can make full sense of Hardy's fiction only when its consistent psychological methods and structures have been uncovered and described. The psychology of Hardy's novels is an attempt to give a full initial account of these methods and structures.
