THOMAS HARDY

Literary Classic Book Collection on CD. Author Biography

Thomas Hardy (1840 – 1928)

literary classics on cd rom, book collection,classic book author, literature Thomas Hardy, far from the madding crowd, jude the obscure, the woodlandersThomas Hardy was born at Higher Bockhampton, Dorset. From his mother he received his appreciation for music and from his mother, an appetite for learning and a love for the countryside.

Due to bad health, Thomas Hardy did not start school until the age of eight. By sixteen he was helping his father with architectural drawings, and was soon to be taken on as an apprentice by James Hicks. Later he was to be employed by Arthur Blomfield in London, in the same line of work, and outside of work began writing poetry. Poor health forced him to return to Dorset, and from here he set about planning the restoration of St. Juiliot church, in Cornwall. Hardy married the vicar’s sister-in-law in 1874.

Thomas Hardy’s first published novel was Desperate Remedies, but it was until his second book, Under the Greenwood Tree, that he began to gain popular acclaim.

Hardy’s wife Emma, died in 1912, and the grief and anguish produced some of his best poetry. Two years later he remarried to his secretary, Florence Dudale.

Thomas Hardy died on January 11th, 1928 at his home (Max Gate – now a property of the National Trust) in Dorchester.
