Although better known during his lifetime for his novels, Thomas Hardy always aspired to being a poet and claimed to have written novels solely to make a living in his early years. ‘Loving-kindness’ was one of Hardy’s favourite expressions, and it is a feeling which we find suffusing many of his poems. (James Gibson, Palgrave). This is certainly reflected in the collection set here. Drawn to the fun, light-hearted and witty nature of the poetry, it is radical yet truly timeless.
