Thomas Hardy Complete 18 Volume Collection
Hardy wrote about his native Wessex and the people he knew and understood – shepherds, tenant farmers and country squires. You might think that this would limit his scope. Yet he shocked polite Victorian society with his powerful novels Tess Of The d’Urbervilles and Jude The Obscure. Here was life in the raw. The impossible plight of the people who worked on the land. Nature – cruel and relentless. Frustrated passions suddenly exposed. The real disappointments of love and life the world over, as Hardy saw them, tackled with honesty and courage. Although he portrayed life with a harsh vigour, he showed a gentle compassion for his hapless characters and lightened their load with a delicate humour.
