Abstract:

The novels and poems of Hardy are set in the land of his birth, Dorset, which he called by its ancient name of Wessex. Far from the Madding Crowd, The Return of the Native, The Mayor of Casterbridge, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Jude the Obscure all draw their characters, their daily activities, the locales in which they are set, from the farmers and farriers, shopkeepers and schoolteachers, from the towns and fields and coastline, from the sights and smells and mood of this part of England. Juxtaposing the scenes of today-barely changed from those of Hardy's day-with his poems and descriptive passages from the novels, this program provides an underpinning of the author's reality for his poetic and fictional creations.
