Thomas Hardy abandoned the novel form at the turn of the century, probably after public reaction to Jude the Obscure, but continued to write verse displaying a wide variety of metrical styles and stanza forms and a broad scope of tone and attitude. This definitive volume contains selections from his numerous collections published between 1898 and 1928. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.… (mehr)

A stunning, life-altering revelation. I had been aware since my undergraduate days of Hardy's second career as a poet -- one of the strangest in the history of English letters -- and the nearly fanatical devotion he engendered among readers of a certain stripe, without ever having made the effort to penetrate the mystery of his verse. The wait has been richly rewarded. As many other critics have noted, Hardy wrote some of the weirdest verse imaginable; Robert Mezey, in his cheerleader-ly introduction, quotes Donald Davie's assessment that in the face of Hardy's verse "one honest critic after another has by his own confession retired, baffled and defeated." Its quality seems wildly uneven; along lyrics of stunning penetration stand passages that A. E. Housman would have rejected as corny. Its often jarring rhythms and unpredictable meter make it seem at times almost proto-modernist, while the insistence on archaic and rural language have the purity and strangeness of some bizarre lost pre-Middle English folk poet; the Gawain poet as imagined by John Clare and written by Hopkins, perhaps? Truly there is no comparison. The sadness, the effortless expression of the profoundest metaphysical questions in the simplest, most natural language, the force of his poetic imagination... this is work that defies description, in the most positive of ways. In a personal sense, a reading experience like this stands as a re-affirmation of the beautiful endlessness of poetry. ( )

My least favorite Hardy to date. Probably a 3.5 star read after the second half but I really struggled feeling engaged in the first half. ( )
