ENG 347: 20th Century British Literature: 3. Hardy - Energized by a Sense of Loss

Topic:

 The critic Richard Ellmann writes, "The archetypal scene in a Hardy poem is a man meditating on his losses, surrounded by ghosts of what he has loved or hoped for, preserving his identity in a friendless landscape only by the momentary intensity of his feeling."  Consider Hardy as a poet who is energized by a sense of loss.
