This guide presents for the first time this century a catalogue listing the characters in the fiction of Thomas Hardy. In minutes, the reader can find a summary of who does what and in which work - useful for students, scholars, and lovers of Hardy everywhere. The fruit of a lifetime of study, journalist Huw Barker Rahane has created a lively and concise register of colourful men and women, dramatically bringing out Hardy's constant theme of sexual desire and fulfilment - and the consequences where the balance is not struck. The book presents an unrivalled opportunity to rediscover painlessly many gripping and half-forgotten works, some of them quite short, all catalogued here alongside old mainstays such as "The Mayor of Casterbridge" and "Jude the Obscure". Thanks to the book's cool, informal style, the reader will be encouraged to go back to the original and uniquely rich world of Hardy's imagination.
