Do you want to learn more about the great author Thomas Hardy, but don’t have time to read/listen to huge, long biographies? Then let The History Journals take you on an hourly history tour of his life.
Some of the most memorable stories of all time were written by the 19th century author and poet, Thomas Hardy. This extraordinary man not only conjured vivid images of the Dorset countryside where he lived, filling it with unforgettable characters drawn from his memories of rural life, but also broached the conflicts brewing in Victorian England, as he rebelled against a society divided in class and reigned over by an unforgiving clergy.
Far from the Madding Crowd, The Return of the Native, and Tess of the D’Urbervilles are but a few of his masterpieces, but behind the image of this elderly and respectable gentleman, emotional turmoil stormed and within his poetry we find the key to the depths of his soul.
Briefly delve into the settings of many of his books, and learn how they were inspired by his life and the countryside and cities where he lived.
