(From the publisher):
These six stories of love, revenge, jealousy and fate set in Hardy's Wessex demonstrate his unique skill at portraying the people and life of rural England in the late nineteenth century. But Hardy's attitude is modern: his views on women, religion and class could well be those of today, and in his presentation of the characters in these stories we see him at his most psychologically subtle and ironic.
