The London Lecture 2012

The Thomas Hardy London Lecture: Professor Barrie Bullen: ‘Thomas Hardy and Expressive Environments’. 
Event sponsored by Birkbeck School of English & Humanities.

LOCATION AND TRANSFORMATION IN HARDY’S TESS
 
This lecture anticipates Professor Bullen’s forthcoming book, The World of Thomas Hardy’s Novels, in which he explores the way in which Hardy, using the art, architecture and music of the nineteenth century, transforms Dorset locations into the visionary places of Wessex.

Focussing on Tess of the d’Urbervilles Professor Bullen shows how the story is suffused with myth and legend and how the mythographic substructure transforms everyday locations into places that are preternaturally magical.

7.30 pm - The Keynes Library, Birkbeck College, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1 0PD.

Admission FREE
