Thomas Hardy's debt to William Barnes

Alan Chedzoy

The speaker Alan Chedzoy taught in secondary schools, and for eighteen years in teacher education. A graduate in literature and philosophy, his doctoral thesis related the theory of literature to educational philosophy. His work has been published in such educational journals as: 'The Use of English' and 'The Oxford Review of Education'. His recent years have been chiefly devoted to writing literary biographies, and as a member of the William Barnes Society is an authority on Dorset literature and dialect. His readings of the work of Thomas Hardy and William Barnes have been widely praised. The Gramophone magazine's verdict on his recordings of dialect poetry was that 'you will hear none better'.
