Illustrated Classic Stories - 12 Reviews Scores 4.9 Out Of 5 !!!
Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was born in Dorsetshire, England, the region that he later called Wessex in his novels. He trained as an architect and began to practice in 1867 but soon became disillusioned and sought another medium for expression. The precision and orderliness he mastered from his first profession is present in the terse clinical style of his poetry. Because of the adult nature of his themes, Hardy was a controversial writer in his day. His works were often banned and he had difficulty finding a publisher for many of his now classic novels.
