Kitap Hakkında

Thomas Hardy
With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Claire Seymour,
University of Kent at Canterbury

The proverbial phrase 'life's little ironies' was coined by Hardy for his third volume of short stories. These lates 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 characterisation of shrewd and critical psychology, the poignant estimate of human nature and the brooding sense of wonder at the essential mystery of live.

The tales which make up Life's Little Ironies tenderly re-create a rapidly vanishing rural world and scrutinise the repressions of fin-de-siecle bourgeois life. They share many of the concerns of Hardy's last great novels, such as the failure of modern marriage and the insidious effects of social ambition on the family and community life. Ranging widely in length and complexity, they are unified by Hardy's quintessential irony, which embraces both the farcical and the tragic aspects of human existence.
