Video: Thomas Hardy in London
Mark Ford talks to Seamus Perry
Because Thomas Hardy is so closely associated with the rural Wessex of his novels, stories, and poems, it is easy to forget that he was, in his own words, half a Londoner. Mark Ford explores this dimension of Hardy’s life and work in his new book, Thomas Hardy: Half a Londoner, which he discussed with Seamus Perry at the London Review Bookshop. Ford and Perry are both regular contributors to the LRB; explore below some suggested further reading from the LRB archive, including a selection of their articles, as well as essays about Hardy by other writers, and a poem too.
