Historical Who is Who

HARDY Thomas

1840 - 1928
England
LITERATURE

Novelist and poet, whose writing is vividly associated with the Wessex countryside (the English south-west) and is characterised by compassion and responsibility. The sense of grief and fateful disappointment pervading many of his stories is most powerfully qualified in his poetry. In spite of misfortune and unluck, his affirmation that morality matters is consistently there and in later life extended to animal welfare.
