The Dynasts: A Thomas Hardy Society Study Day2024 marks the 120th anniversary of the publication of Thomas Hardy's The Dynasts

The Dynasts is a drama in verse and prose by Thomas Hardy. Hardy himself described this work as ‘an epic-drama of the war with Napoleon, in three parts, nineteen acts and one hundred and thirty scenes’. The three parts were published in 1904, 1906 and 1908. This study day will consider the text in the light of its context and new meanings will be extrapolated.
