"Hardy is a worthy subject for a narratological study and Ireland has provided a detailed exploration of his handling of time and narrative perspective in his fourteen novels. Through offering some valuable insights into the internal workings of Hardy's novels, Thomas Hardy, Time and Narrative has opened up some suggestive lines of inquiry for those who may wish to examine the thematic significance of Ireland's findings." (Trish Ferguson, English Studies, Vol. 97 (7), 2016)
Ken Ireland has lectured for The Open University, taught numerous courses for the Universities of Cambridge, UEA and London, and published two books, many articles and conference papers.
