Summary
This program from the Famous Authors series offers an overview of the biography and works of Thomas Hardy. The film introduces the writer's hometown of Dorchester, which was a strong part of his identity and the model for the fictional land of Wessex where most of his stories were set. Insights into his lower class upbringing, waning religious conviction, and the major relationships in his life, with his mother Jemima and his wife Emma, cultivate an understanding of his work.
