Publisher's Summary

This selection of Hardy's poetry does full justice to its humanity, integrity, humour and evocative power, ranging from charming anthology pieces such as Weathers to the great love poems he wrote after the death of his first wife and his meditations on war and philosophy. The poems - nearly 80 in total - are set in the context of his life and thought, including personal writings by him and those closest to him.

Audible Editor Reviews

Thomas Hardy ceased novelizing, but continued, to compose verse well into the twentieth century. In this audio program, examples of his poetry from early to late are interspersed with brief notes and quotes from his prose writing that put the selections in context. Bruce Alexander and Janet Maw take turns interpreting the works. They read expressively, with particular attention to mood.
