Wessex Poems and Other Verses

By Thomas Hardy
Free
Book Description

Hardy's verse is spare, unadorned, and unromatic, and its pervasive theme is man's futile struggle against cosmic forces. Like many of his novels, these 51 poems are set against the bleak and forbidding Dorset landscape, whose physical harshness echoes that of an indifferent, if not malevolent, universe.
