A pair of blue eyes by Thomas Hardy( Book )
24 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 611 libraries worldwide
Overview: Elfride is the daughter of the Rector of Endelstow, a remote sea-swept parish in Cornwall based on St. Juliot, where Thomas Hardy began the book during the first days of his courtship of his first wife Emma. Blue-eyed and high-spirited, Elfride has little experience of the world beyond, and becomes entangled with two men: the boyish architect, Stephen Smith, and the older literary man, Henry Knight. The former friends become rivals, and Elfride faces an agonizing choice. This novel contains strong autobiographical parallels between the characters and circumstances of Stephen Smith and Elfride Swancourt
Life's little ironies : a set of tales, with some colloquial sketches, entitled, A few crusted characters by Thomas Hardy( Book )
14 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 310 libraries worldwide
The proverbial phrase 'life's little ironies' was coined by Hardy for this volume of short stories. These tales and sketches possess all the power of his novels: the wealth of description, the realistic portrayal of the quaint lore of Wessex, the 'Chaucerian' humour and characterization, the shrewd and critical psychology, the poignant estimate of human nature and the brooding sense of wonder at the essential mystery of life. Ranging widely in length and complexity, they are united by Hardy's quintessential irony, embracing both the farcical and the tragic aspects of human existence
