    okładka Wessex Tales, Ebook | Thomas Hardy

    Wessex Tales contains seven stories, the first two of which are really very short – the rest are much longer. In this collection, Hardy explored the familiar themes of marriage and rural life that we see in his novel. The Three Strangers is surprisingly atmospheric, with a delightful little twist, although, in short, this is a perfectly thought out little story, a small isolated cottage filled with locals to celebrate, inclement weather and the unexpected arrival of three s...

    okładka Far from the Madding Crowd, Ebook | Thomas Hardy

    In the novel “Far From the Crazed Crowd”, Hardy reveals the great and eternal drama of the relationship between a man and a woman. At one time, the vivid, complicated story of the love triangle of the independent and proud Bathsheba, who inherited the farm in the wilderness of Northern England, the peasant Gabriel Oak and the “alien from urban civilization” sergeant Troy became a real literary scandal. Interestingly, Hardy’s novel is still considered scandalous and violates...

    okładka The Woodlanders, Ebook | Thomas Hardy

    The novel takes the reader to the very depths of rural England. The small village of Hintok, the scene of the novel, is so small that it’s even hard to find in the thicket of the forest, but this is where the tragedies of “truly Sophocles greatness” are played out. The reason for these tragedies is the clash of natural human characters preserved in the reserved wilderness of rural England.

    okładka Jude the Obscure, Ebook | Thomas Hardy

    Jude is a layman who is cursed by an even larger figure: a pre-feminist minx. In the case of Jude, being associated with a woman in the then strange double is a fatal flaw. And not just any woman: Sue Briadhead, a Bovarian double, is ambivalent, mean and not romantic. Of course, she alone would betray Judah’s affection, break his heart. She is the sad queen of drama!
