Meet the Author

Thomas Hardy was born on June 2, 1840. In his writing, he immortalized the site of his birth—Egdon Heath, in Dorset, near Dorchester. Delicate as a child, he was taught at home by his mother before he attended grammar school. At sixteen, Hardy was apprenticed to an architect, and for many years, architecture was his profession; in his spare time, he pursued his first and last literary love, poetry. Finally convinced that he could earn his living as an author, he retired from architecture, married, and devoted himself to writing. An extremely productive novelist, Hardy published an important book every year or two. In 1896, disturbed by the public outcry over the unconventional subjects of his two greatest novels—Tess of the D’Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure—he announced that he was giving up fiction and afterward produced only poetry. In later years, he received many honors. He died on January 11, 1928, and was buried in Poet’s Corner, in Westminster Abbey. It was as a poet that he wished to be remembered, but today critics regard his novels as his most memorable contribution to English literature for their psychological insight, decisive delineation of character, and profound presentation of tragedy.

    A saga of love : lost and found

    I picked the copy in our city book-fair for no specific reason , and once I started reading I had ..a tryst with myself, my whole existence shaken. I have never before experienced such a journey into alleys of love and passion , crossing the lanes of circumstances and crashing downat last, leaving you love-struck, whatever that may mean.

    Incredible Emotional Rollercoaster

    I can't believe no-one reviewed this book yet, I'd recommend it to all fellow romantics but as with all hardy novels don't expect a happy ending. I couldn't sleep after reading it, the beauty of description of the English landscape, the doomed love between Grace and Giles, the frustration you feel towards propriety and the social conventions at that time, how happiness for everyone seems just in reach and then is cruelly snatched away. If you don't fall in love with at least one character in this book then you must have a heart of stone!

    Poorly Formatted

    This ebook is so poorly formatted it is nearly illegible. I'm not sure I'll be able to finish it and that's a shame because it seems like an interesting story.
