Thomas Hardy Appreciation Thread

dont you love that part in tess o' the d'urbervilles when angel picks her up while he's sleepwalking and carries her to the river, she doesn't wake him or try to save herself, she wants them to drown together more than anything, and he kisses her and puts her in the coffin.



talk about more good stuff from his works
or i'll talk to myself again

i remember i liked the rising and falling fortunes of the man in The Mayor of Casterbridge. the bit you mention in Tess makes me think of the Millais' painting "Ophelia". same vein of Beauty.

Prolly not. It is an "appreciation" thread..

Maybe you could start a new thread entitled "Thomas Hardy Bashing Thread". Or something.

I studied Thomas Hardy's poetry in English. I love the poem he did called 'The Ruined Maid.' I think it shows his sense of sarcasm and irony.

absolute favorite Thomas Hardy novel: "Far From The Madding Crowd"
Bathsheba is Scarlett O'Hara's forerunner.
I'm a sucker for that whole landscape/nature/creature mirroring the inner drama of the characters' souls kind of thing .
