Description

First published in 1914, this collection contains the famous 'Poems of 1912-13' about Hardy's deceased wife. 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 folk song 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 diction." This is NOT a facsimile, but a modern edition.show more
