   Introduction

   This bibliography of writings about Thomas Hardy was compiled in part 
   fulfilment of an MA dissertation. It is limited to items published in the 
   UK, USA and Canada between 1990 and 1999. It includes book length studies 
   on Hardy, significant book sections, journal articles, essays and lectures, 
   and Ph.D. and MPhil theses. It does not include review articles, entries in 
   dictionaries and encyclopaedias, music, maps, videos, CDs or web pages.

   The decision to limit the geographical area and format of the items was 
   reluctantly made on the basis of making the project achievable by a lone 
   compiler.

   The period was chosen because, whilst acknowledging work published on the 
   major novels by Sherrick in 1998, it covers a significant gap in the 
   comprehensive recording of Hardy scholarship. Thirty two sources were 
   checked for this compilation including electronic databases, websites, 
   catalogues and printed bibliographies. The bibliography is presented in 
   alpha/author order. Additions fitting the criteria of this bibliography 
   should be sent to jean_e_smith@hotmail.com
