Nathalie Bantz teaches English in a senior high school in northeastern France. She defended her PhD dissertation on Hardy’s short stories at Nancy University in April 2009 and published it in book form in 2011 under the title Les Nouvelles de Thomas Hardy. Stratégies narratives d’une écriture sous contrainte. Her research focuses on the subversive aspects of Hardy’s works and more particularly on gender issues. She is currently working on a translation of a few of Hardy’s short stories still unpublished in French. She is also preparing a comparative study of a short story by Hardy and a novel by an American writer of the same period.
