Sull'Autore

Thomas Hardy was born on June 2, 1840, in Higher Bockhampton, England. The eldest child of Thomas and Jemima, Hardy studied Latin, French, and architecture in school. He also became an avid reader. Upon graduation, Hardy traveled to London to work as an architect's assistant under the guidance of mostra altro Arthur Bloomfield. He also began writing poetry. How I Built Myself a House, Hardy's first professional article, was published in 1865. Two years later, while still working in the architecture field, Hardy wrote the unpublished novel The Poor Man and the Lady. During the next five years, Hardy penned Desperate Remedies, Under the Greenwood Tree, and A Pair of Blue Eyes. In 1873, Hardy decided it was time to relinquish his architecture career and concentrate on writing full-time. In September 1874, his first book as a full-time author, Far from the Madding Crowd, appeared serially. After publishing more than two dozen novels, one of the last being Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Hardy returned to writing poetry--his first love. Hardy's volumes of poetry include Poems of the Past and Present, The Dynasts: Part One, Two, and Three, Time's Laughingstocks, and The Famous Tragedy of the Queen of Cornwall. From 1833 until his death, Hardy lived in Dorchester, England. His house, Max Gate, was designed by Hardy, who also supervised its construction. Hardy died on January 11, 1928. His ashes are buried in Poet's Corner at Westminster Abbey. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Breve biografia
Thomas Hardy (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, including the poetry of William Wordsworth. He was highly critical of much in Victorian society, especially on the declining status of rural people in Britain, such as those from his native South West England.

While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, he gained fame as the author of novels such as Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). During his lifetime, Hardy's poetry was acclaimed by younger poets (particularly the Georgians) who viewed him as a mentor. After his death his poems were lauded by Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden and Philip Larkin.

Many of his novels concern tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances, and they are often set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex; initially based on the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom, Hardy's Wessex eventually came to include the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Hampshire and much of Berkshire, in southwest and south central England. Two of his novels, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Far from the Madding Crowd, were listed in the top 50 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.

Descrizioni dei luoghi, soprattutto della brughiera inglese stupendi..
Tess è una vittima sacrificale della cultura dell'epoca ma anche dei personaggi che ruotano intorno alla sua vita. Prima tra tutte la madre, con un comportamento a dir poco vergognoso durante tutto il libro, sia quando la istiga ad andare a incontrare i parenti "storici", sia ogni volta quando Tess rientra a casa, non fa in tempo a salutarla che già le rinfaccia la sua delusione nei suoi confronti.
Poi incontra Alec, che abusa di lei, poi si pente ma per i propri comodi tornerà a mentire verso Tess. Poi entra in scena Angel, le pagine centrali, dove lui fa una corte serrata a Tess, sono bellissime, fin quando lei non cede e si sposano...Tess gli perdona un suo passato movimentato ma lui quando viene a conoscenza di quello di Tess è intransigente.
Angel, sembrava che amasse Tess sopra ogni cosa, ma ci mette ben poco per abbandonarla e fuggire in Brasile..E se tutto questo non bastasse chiede addirittura
a Izzy di accompagnarlo...Angel era solo innamorato dell'idea dell'amore, non capace ne di vivere l'amore ne di affrontare la realtà. Lascia Tess per più di un anno da sola a far fronte a tutte le problematiche dovute all'epoca e alla sua estrazione sociale. Torna solo quando sta male, quando contrae una grave malattia...
Mi sono anche a tratti arrabbiata con Tess, per non aver reagito ma probabilmente qui sbaglio io, dimenticandomi che stiamo parlando di un'altra epoca e di un'altra mentalità.

Queste 110 pagine mi hanno fatta avvicinare a Thomas Hardy,sono riuscite a catturarmi e ad appassionarmi a questo racconto breve.
Non oso pensare quale esperienza di lettura dev'essere leggere i suoi romani più famosi.
Libro su cui si potrebbe discutere a lungo sulle tematiche trattate..
Crudele, sadico, apparenza, lontananza, essere, amore, illusione, rimpianto...sono solo alcune parole e temi trattati in queste pagine...
