Thomas Hardy: Life’s Little Ironies

29.00 kn (~ 3,86 €)

Description Introduction and Notes by Dr Claire Seymour, University of Kent at Canterbury. The proverbial phrase ‘life’s little ironies’ was coined by Hardy for his third volume of short stories. These tales and sketches possess all the power of his novels: the wealth of description, the realistic portrayal of the quaint lore of Wessex, the ‘Chaucerian’ humour and characterisation, the shrewd and critical psychology, the poignant estimate of human nature and the brooding sense of wonder at the essential mystery of life.
