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 the meditations on war and philosophy. The poems—nearly eighty in total—are set in the context of his life and thought, including personal writings by him and those closest to him.
