For the final thirty years of his life he abandoned fiction and devoted himself entirely to poetry. It is a tribute to his remarkable powers of creativity that he is now not only regarded as one of the most important of English novelists but is also recognised as a poet of major stature and ever-increasing popularity. The Complete Poems, edited by James Gibson, includes all of Hardy's prolific output of more than nine hundred poems, complemented by a detailed notes section."
