    Thomas Hardy was born at Higher Bockhampton, Dorset, on June 2 , where his father worked as a master mason and builder. From his father, he gained an appreciation of music and from his mother, an appetite for learning and the delights of the countryside about his rural home. This book is a radical counter-argument to the idea that Hardy is faithfully representing the Dorset of his time, an argument which has been accepted uncritically for too long. It is a valuable contribution to what will no doubt be an on-going debate about a central feature of Hardy's fiction: in that debate, Roger Lowman's voice needs to be.
