About Author:

Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy, OM, was an English author of the naturalist movement, although in several poems he displays elements of the previous romantic and enlightenment periods of literature, such as his fascination with the supernatural He regarded himself primarily as a poet and composed novels mainly for financial gain The bulk of his work, set mainly in the semi fictional land of Wessex, delineates characters struggling against their passions and circumstances Hardy s poetry, first published in his 50s, has come to be as well regarded as his novels, especially after The Movement of the 1950s and 1960s The term cliffhanger is considered to have originated with Thomas Hardy s serial novel A Pair of Blue Eyes in 1873 In the novel, Hardy chose to leave one of his protagonists, Knight, literally hanging off a cliff staring into the stony eyes of a trilobite embedded in the rock that has been dead for millions of years This became the archetypal and literal cliff hanger of Victorian prose.Excerpted from.



Comments Thomas Hardy: Poems

  • Pete daPixie

    I haven't read any poetry since reading Stephen Fry's 'The Ode Less Travelled'. Now that I have, I find that I am armed with pencil in hand making notes. (I must rub them out's a library book)The wonderful Mr Fry has caused me to count each line of verse to reveal it's metre. HELP!I used to just read the stuff.

    Thomas Hardy should get alot more recognition that he does. His poems are fantastic and all very different styles but equally wonderful.The book itself is very pretty and I love the layout where poems are split into sections eg Marriage, War, Himself etc I will be placing this on my bookshelf but it will be read many times.

    Obviously you can find Hardy's poems in many places, but this book is nicely printed with good quality pages and a decent layout. I love that the collection starts with "Neutral Tones," the best bitter post-love poem I have ever read. Also includes "The Darkling Thrush," an apprehensive poem about the turning of the century, and the classic "Convergence of the Twain," about the Titanic. I've come to prefer Hardy's poems over his books because poems force him to confine his dark musings to a few [...]

    man, oh man, thomas hardy his poetry is so so beautiful and i love his depictions of nature and death and spirits and war. a couple of my favourites include 'drummer hodge', 'afterwards', and any of the emma poems, really. granted, there are a couple i dislike (i'm looking at you, 'lizzie browne') but you win some, you lose some, i guess.
