19030THOMAS HARDY`S ' STUDIES, SPECIMENS & C.' NOTEBOOK.DALZIEL PAMELA AND MICHAEL MILLGATE (EDITED BY): FINE HARDBACK IN BLACK CLOTH - NO DUSTWRAP. THE IMPORTANCE OF `STUDIES , SPECIMENS ETC.`NOTEBOOK CAN SCARCELY BE EXAGGERATED. ALTHOUGH NOT ONE OF THE DIARY-NOTEBOOKS, IT STANDS ALMOST ALONE AS A WITNESS TO HARDY`S EXERTIONS AND ASPERATIONS IN THE MID 1860`S. WHILE THE NOTEBOOK CONTAINS NO DRAFTS OF ACTUAL POEMS, IT IS OF EXTRAORDINARY INTEREST AS PROVIDING DETAILED EVIDENCE OF THE WAYS IN WHICH HARDY WAS SEEKING TO PROVIDE HIMSELF WITH A POETIC BACKGROUND AND EDUCATING HIMSELF IN POETIC TECHNIQUES.CLARENDON PRESS.
