Hardy's Poetry


Dennis Taylor

Boston College

This division of the Hardy Poetry Page exists to offer guidance to students or others who may wish to know which editions of Hardy's poetry have been prepared according to reputable editorial principles and which of them may be, therefore, most appropriate for serious study and scholarly citation. The "Guide to Editions of Hardy's Poetry" by Dennis Taylor will be the primary feature of the division, but we may, as time serves in the future, be able to offer assessments of the textual reliability of various edited selections from Hardy's verse as well.
