A pair of blue eyes by Thomas Hardy( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a remote sea-swept parish in Cornwall, high-spirited young Elfride is the sheltered daughter of the Rector.

The former friends become rivals and Elfride faces an agonizing choice
Wessex poems : and other verses by Thomas Hardy( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wessex was the 'partly-real, partly-dream' county that formed the backdrop for most of Hardy's writings - named after an Anglo-Saxon kingdom and modelled on the real counties of Berkshire, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire. The poems deal with classic Hardy themes of disappointment in love and life and the struggle to live a meaningful life in an indifferent world. Although Hardy's poetry was not as well received as his fiction, he continued to publish collections until his death, and thanks in part to the influence of Philip Larkin he is increasingly realised as a poet of great stature

Poems of the past and the present by Thomas Hardy( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though best remembered as one of the foremost Victorian realists who created classic works of fiction like Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure, Thomas Hardy always considered himself to be more a poet than a novelist at heart. Over time, critics and fans alike have warmed to Hardy's verse, and his influence has been cited by several acclaimed contemporary poets, including Philip Larkin. This poetry collection brings together some of Hardy's most accomplished works
A Laodicean : a story of to-day by Thomas Hardy( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the extended annotated edition including a rare biographical essay on the life and works of the author. In 'A Laodicean' (1881) Mr. Hardy became less spontaneous and charming, although more subtle and, perhaps, more powerful. The heroine, Paula Power, the Laodicean, neither hot nor cold, is a most interesting study in feminine psychology. The three leading male characters-Somerset, the architect, Dare, the adventurer, and Captain de Stancy, the scion of a decayed family-are well drawn

Jude the obscure : an authoritative text, backgrounds and sources, criticism by Thomas Hardy( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marriage, the Church of England, and the British university system all come under criticism in a story about two cousins who love each other and want to improve their lot in life." "In this haunting love story, a couple who have each fled a previous marriage find love and fulfillment together, only to have tragedy overwhelm them." "Both having left earlier marriages, Jude Fawley and Sue Brideshead find happiness in their relationship. Ironically, when tragedy tests their union, it is Sue, the modern emancipated woman, who proves unequal to the challenge."
