Drawing on aspects of Foucauldian feminist theory Thomas Hardy's Women: Femininity in Crisis offers detailed readings of six critically under-valued novels: Desperate Remedies , A Pair of Blue Eyes , The Hand of Ethelberta , A Laodicean , Two on a Tower and The Well-Beloved , demonstrating Hardy's appreciation of how individuals negotiate the forces which shape their sense of self. Tracing his interest in the evolutionary debate and the woman question, this book reveals a politically engaged rather than a pessimistic Hardy. The book is aimed at departments of literature (courses on Thomas Hardy); womens studies, and feminist theory.
