Forever Don t get bogged down in narrative tangents The simplicity of this tale makes room for its psychological richness not the same s complexity just depth I wish I could do this In comparision to the other 19th century realists with whom Hardy is often compared Hardy it seems to me is the purest of them ll He doesn t get lost in well meaning documentarian slumming s Zola did nd he has less of the pathos of Wharton or James That said I prefer Wharton nd James somehow their characters seem yet tragic I m not sure why perhaps there is Defending Hearts a teeny bit less subtelynd elegance to Hardy s writing His is sure footed Anglo saxon stubborn forceful And yet with beautiful moments of uthorial reflection We ll have to take poll Thomas Hardy was genius I know that he wrote tragedies with characters crushed by fate or their own mistakes yet there were so many twists nd turns in this novel that I held out hope until the very end He had me rooting for Michael Henchard the Mayor in spite of his difficult sometimes cruel temperament I was enthralled throughout this is hardy s most perfectly constructed novel there re others that re ppealing to me m i Feel the Heat (Phoenix Agency, allowed to say that but this one is such perfect cause nd effect every ction has Sudden Fury (The Last Gunfighter, a reaction kind of book that it should really be his most popularnd successful instead of tess which by comparison is pure melodrama mayor is full of the trappings of melodrama convenient Spiky and inexplicable deaths characters long out of the picture returningt the least opportune times overheard conversations nd love triangles nd deathbed confessions nd yet it is so much than that it is the long drawn out punishment of man who makes Dungeon of Death an impulsive mistake tries to redeem himselfnd finds that when thomas hardy is writing your life it just isn t going to work out for you sorry this book has psychological insight than tess nd henchard is much complex Love Rockets and nuanced character thanny found in tess world tess punishments result from her gender her innocence the hypocrisy of society nd mismanaged letter henchard is no ingenuenor is this like jude where A Deceptive Homecoming (Hattie Davish Mystery, a basically good but misguided man falls victim to circumstances michael henchard isn unlikeable character through nd through but the fact that he tries to be better man nd even pulls it off for while should be enough right even though he is rrogant nd hot tempered even though he sold his wife nd baby in drunken impulse is he not even candidate for redemption he regrets his mistakes nd even though he continues to make his The Hired Man awareness of his character flaws should be enough tovoid his fate rightnope this is hardyland hardy doesn t take kindly to people trying to rise bove their circumstances nor does he take kindly to people getting off scot free from their mistakes good intentions or not tess nd ngel pay jude nd sue pay Almost A Gentleman and michael henchard will payalong with the very hardy esue theme of stay putnd be good this book is nother shining example of hardy s facility with descriptive
