Omtale: Haunted Hardy
Hardy was a poet of ghosts. In his poetry he describes himself as posthumous; as rekindling the cinders of passion; as the guardian of the dead forgotten by history; and as haunted by ghosts, particularly the spectre of the lost child (as in the rumour that he fathered a child in the 1860s). Using Derrida, Abraham and Torok and other theorists, and referring to Victorian debates on materialism, this book investigates ghostliness, historicity and memory in Hardy's poetry.
