Woman Much Missed

About the Author:

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) is one of the most renowned novelists and poets in English literary history. Born in Higher Bockhampton, Dorset, Hardy became an apprentice architect at the age of 16 and spent his twenties in London where he wrote his first poems. In 1867 Hardy returned to his native Dorset, whose rugged landscape was a great source of inspiration for his writing. Hardy was a prolific writer, between 1871 and 1897 he wrote fourteen novels, three volumes of short stories and several poems. In this period he wrote some of his greatest novels including 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles' and 'Jude the Obscure'. Hardy's long career spanned the Victorian and modern eras and though his work was not well received during his lifetime, it has had a lasting impact on English literature influencing the likes of Virginia Woolf and Philip Larkin.
