about

Was Thomas Hardy clinically depressed or just syphilitic? Was Egdon Heath imbued with melancholic vapours? And does this explain why many of his characters suffered from depression, took their own lives or developed homicidal tendencies? This book by a rural GP explores these and many other medical issues in Hardy's life and works.
TONY FINCHAM has been a General Practitioner in rural West Kent for nearly 30 years. He has had a life-long passion for Thomas Hardy and is a Council Member of the Thomas Hardy Society, taking after his grandfather who was a founder member. He is dually qualified, having completed a PhD on medical aspects of Hardy's life and works.
