John Frow's analysis of Power without Glory in Marxism and Literary History is often regarded as one of the seminal pieces written on Hardy. Frow provides a rigorous defence against institutional literary histories which have relegated Hardy to the status of "non-writer" and Communist "propagandist" and in so doing, discovers new dynamics within Hardy's realist writings which have been ignored by the critics of the socialist realist novel. Nevertheless, it is the contention of this article that Frow's account still only provides a limited and indeed under-theorised account of the importance of Hardy's writings and the multiple forms of determination which need to be considered in a literary history.
