    AUTHOR: Thomas Hardy () had a writing career which spanned more than fifty years, and he is now considered both a major novelist and poet. His tales of Wessex, a fictional amalgamation of various south-west counties, have a lasting appeal, and many, such as 'The Mayor of Casterbridge' and 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles' have become popular 1/5(1). The English author Thomas Hardy set all of his major novels in the south and southwest of England. He named the area "Wessex" after the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom that existed in this part of that country prior to the unification of England by gh the places that appear in his novels actually exist, in many cases he gave the place a fictional name.

      Thomas Hardy was born the son of a mason and builder in , was apprenticed to an ecclesiastical architect at 16, and at 30 launched his career as a novelist. Not surprisingly, while Robert Gittings' two-volume Hardy study (, ) was strongest on Hardy-the-poet, Millgate—co-editor of the Hardy Letters and author of Thomas Hardy: His Career as a Novelist ()—is best on Hardy-the-novelist, with particular emphasis on the imaginative transformation of autobiographical material into emotionally charged fiction.

    Egdon Heath is a fictitious area of Thomas Hardy's Wessex inhabited sparsely by the people who cut the furze that grows entire action of Hardy's novel The Return of the Native takes place on Egdon Heath, and it also features in The Mayor of Casterbridge and the short story The Withered Arm (). The area is rife with witchcraft and superstition.   Publishers' Weekly ' remains a major contribution to Hardy studies' - Charles Osborne, Sunday Telegraph Originally published in and now for the first time reprinted, Thomas Hardy: His Career as a Novelist has long been recognized as a major - and exceptionally well-written - work of Hardy criticism that also set new standards for Hardy 4/5(5).
