Moments of Vision and Miscellaneous Verses
First published in 1917, this collection is full of typical Hardy poems, including several which record his response to the First World War. Thomas Hardy wrote in a great variety of poetic forms including lyrics, ballads, satire, dramatic monologues, and dialogue, and though in some ways a very traditional poet, because he was influenced by folksong and ballads, he "was never conventional," and "persistently experiment[ed] with different, often invented, stanza forms and metres and made use of "rough-hewn rhythms and colloquial dic-tion."
