Poems of Thomas Hardy
Poems of Thomas Hardy: A New Selection | Thomas Hardy
15 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
Thomas Hardy saw himself, first and foremost, as a poet, and he wrote poetry throughout his prolific and acclaimed novel-writing years before announcing in 1896 that he would no longer write novels, much to the astonishment of his worldwide readership. Instead he went on to publish eight masterful volumes of poetry - ranging from lyrics and ballads to dramatic monologues and satire - and is now regarded as one of the greatest twentieth-century poets. Choosing the best verse from each volume, the Poems of Thomas Hardy is the perfect introduction to Hardy's lyrical, soul-searching and profoundly sincere poetry, covering subjects ranging from his grief at the death of his first wife to his experiences of war. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition is edited and introduced by editor Ned Halley. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

#bookmail My neighbor's house was obliging as a photo set once again. I really like the poetry of Hardy (have only managed to find one other book previously), so I'm excited to add this to my library.

Jess_Read_This Oh!! Is this a Macmillan Collector's Library edition?! It's gorgeous! 7y
LauraBrook @Jess_Read_This It is! I'm loving these gorgeous, old-fashioned editions. 7y
