Event description
A Thomas Hardy Birthday Weekend Lecture by Dr Jonathan Memel

About this Event

In his autobiography, Thomas Hardy remembers himself as an ‘apt pupil who galloped unconcernedly over the ordinary school’ and a ‘born bookworm’ who learnt to read ‘almost before he could walk’. Yet in Hardy’s fiction education is frequently a source of despair and alienation. This talk examines such contrasting accounts by situating Hardy’s writing within late-Victorian debates about the purpose of education.
