About This Item

W.W. Norton & Company/Viva Books, 2010. First edition. Softcover. New. This Norton Critical Edition is based on the 1912 Wessex edition, emended to correct errors which have crept into the text from the manuscript onward. It also incorporates revisions that Hardy made in his ""study copy"" of the novel and in his marked printer’s copy and page proofs for the Harper and Brothers ""sixpenny edition"" of 1901, whenever these revisions can be confidently be judged to represent Hardy’s final deliberate intention. The resulting text includes revisions by Hardy which have never appeared before in a modern edition. The novel is fully annotated and is accompanied by Hardy’s map of Wessex and a simplified map of the landscape of Far from the Madding Crowd. ""Textual Notes"" include a list of emendations, examples of variant readings from the manuscript to the Wessex edition, and a discussion of the choice of copy text. The textual history of the novel is traced in extracts from studies by Richard Little Purdy and Simon Gatrell. ""Backgrounds"" includes substantial extracts from Hardy’s correspondence with Leslie Stephen and is followed by a selection of contemporary reviews. Twentieth-century ""Criticism"" is represented by Howard Babb, Roy Morrell, Alan Friedman, J. Hillis Miller, Michael Millgate, Penelope Vigar, Peter J. Casagrande, Ian Gregor, and Albert C. Schweik.
