Pair of Blue Eyes | Thomas Hardy

So many people make a name nowadays, that it is more distinguished to remain in obscurity.

EadieB @CafeMom The size is a bit threatening but I did the audio and it was a good way to read it. You can also follow along in the book. 4w

I learned facts. Hint: he is the original example of “ write what you know”. BUT I was astonished by the authors‘ plaint about how pessimistic he was & that she couldn‘t understand it. Failing to understand your subject disqualifies you as a biographer and reduces you to a reporter. Which is probably why this book was like the driest English toast. There has just got to be a better telling. I‘ll search and let you know. #classics # Hardylover

In response to @julesG ‘s post about the Wordsworth Classics - These were bought in he 90‘s from a book outlet, so they‘re probably older than that. But they (Wordsworth) used to use art for their covers. It didn‘t always have anything to do with the book, but at least it didn‘t assault the eyes. 😀

batsy These Wordsworth editions are lovely. But their series of editions with the black covers (in the article @julesG posted) are almost uniformly awful 🙈 3mo
Lcsmcat @batsy I know! So why did they change? It makes no sense. 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm These are alright, pleasant to the eyes. 3mo
julesG These are much better. Still, I might have to get some of the "black edition" ones for the special frenemie in my life. ? 3mo
Lcsmcat @julesG 😂🤣 3mo

Absolutely, five stars for Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy. This book never let up! If you like to emotionally invest in your books, try Hardy!

Its was a collection of pretty poems, and I did enjoy them, but they just aren't something I think I would come back to. It was lovely to read how much this guy loved his wife, and his poems were easy to read. Beyond that, though, I don't think that I would read them again.
