Description:
Blue-eyed and high-spirited, Elfride has little experience of the world beyond, and becomes entangled with two men. Written at a crucial time in Hardy's life, A Pair of Blue Eyes expresses more directly than any of his novels the events and social forces that made him the writer he was.

The first of Hardy's novels to give the name of Wessex to the landscape of south-west England, and the first to gain him widespread popularity as a novelist. The story both upholds and questions rural values with a startlingly modern sensibility.

Book cover: Under the Greenwood TreeUnder the Greenwood Tree
by - The Macmillan Company
Under the Greenwood Tree is Thomas Hardy's one and only rural idyll, a startling contrast to his other Wessex tales. It appears to be pastoral romance at its most sunlit and good humoured, and called the 'most nearly flawless of Hardy's novels'.
