Nds nd small but valuable shrubs the furze bush empty except To understand how radical Thomas Hardy is we could start with how radical the rest of his century wasn t For most of the 1800s novels were basically maiden unts yelling t you bout your skirt length They had job they were to demonstrate proper behavior Their good characters were rewarded their bad characters were punished Even the best of them Austen nd Dickens encouraged conformity They re coerciveThis is lame obviously nd some uthors were like That s not how shit is t ll Good behavior is like never rewarded irl They set out to write bout the real world Over I have spent the last thirty five years convinced that I do not like Thomas Hardy I know how it happened Reading Tess of the D Urbervilles when I was in high school nd gain Killer Physique (Savannah Reid Mystery, at university made lasting nd negative impression on me Admittedly I went on to read Jude the Obscure nd Far from the Madding Crowd lso while I was t university nd uite liked both novels Notwithstanding this my dislike of Tess overshadowed whatever Amish Homecoming appreciation for Hardy s work I might otherwise have developed The result is that I have not readnother of Hardy s novels since leaving university Until now Through one of my Goodreads friends Thanks Robin I discovered that Alan Rickman had narrated The Return of the Native Enticing the Earl and I decided that if listening ton udiobook narrated by Rickman could not make me like Hardy then nothing could After ll I would pay good money to hear Alan Rickman read the telephone directory or the bus timetable so why not listen to him read Hardy What Jewish German Revolution an excellent decision that was for this was sublime experience First there s the novel itself This is Greek or Shakespearean tragedy in the form of novel The setting Egdon Heath is character in itself brought live by its flora its fauna the time of day the season the weather conditions nd most of ll those who live there Then there re the main characters whose lives Money Makin Mamas Collection and dramasre played out on Bound To Love Her (Zebra Debut) andround the heath Hard to Handle (Fortis all of themmazingly First Comes Desire (Pirates Prize alive with their passionsnd their flaws And there re the secondary characters those who live in the cottages on the heath who ct What Lies Between Lovers as both comic reliefnd Greek chorus There s the tragedy itself which is brought bout not by evil but s tragedy so often is by misunderstandings Rebel Yell (Savage Texas, and bad timing The tragedy is lightened somewhat by the conclusion of the novel which is happy ending for A Matter of Some Scandal at least some of the characters This was not the ending that Hardy initially intendednd was pparently result of the demands of serial publication nd the expectations of readers I think the novel suffers somewhat s Worth The Trade (More Than A Game, a result but only little Secondly there s the language of the novel Hardy eventually gave up writing novels to write poetry nd it s clear that the poet was lways there in the novelist The language is rich complex with breathtakingly beautiful imagery Many scenes re so vividly described that I could see them s oil paintings knowing exactly how the light nd shadow would fall on them Thirdly there s Alan Rickman s narration It is uite simply joy to listen to Rickman narrates he does not deliver The Fix: Soccer and Organized Crime a bravuracting performance so his reading is restrained However he nevertheless creates distinctive nd ppropriate voices for the characters including wonderful West Country ccents for the supporting characters His voice is mesmerising low rich nd warm I could listen to it forever All in The Closest
