Loved Novelists in English
Literature Whose Enduring
Popularity, Even Almost A Century
After His Death, Is Simply Amazing,
Was Born This Day On June 02,

During A Rather Long Writing Life,
Hardy Wrote A Dozen Good Novels
That Tell Stories of Commonfolks
Living In Countryside Leading A
Life That Could Throw Shocks &
Surprises At The Drop of A Hat,
Mishmashing The Whole Edifice of
Life That Almost Would Touch The
Ruins From Where There Seems No
Escape Routes And The Man or
Woman of These Stories Becomes
Tragic Personage Evoking Pity &
Piety In The Hearts of Readers !
An Ardent Lover of Nature Plus
Simplicity Informing The
Worldview of The Author, Thomas

Love, And Had Composed A Great
Numbers Of Them Totalling Nearly
1000 poems !
Hardy As A Major Poet, Got A Big
Boost In 1950s & 60s During The

Read As They Often Present Their
Life And Its Attendant Problems
Plus Platitudes Which Make Us The

Life Is Governed By Some
Mysterious Forces That Could
Unsettle You Even When You Have

THE MADDING CROWD, THE RETURN
OF NATIVES are his other most
popular novels .
