Stephen Platten – They Know Earth-secrets: Thomas Hardy’s Tortured Vocation

19 October @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Visitor Centre (downstairs)

Thomas Hardy is often read as a classical Victorian agnostic, or more likely atheist. By discussing Hardy’s poetry and prose, Stephen will present the view that his struggle with religious faith was one of the key factors that directed his literary creativity. Stephen is an honorary Assistant Bishop in the dioceses of London, Newcastle and Southwark.
