Thomas Hardy claimed that his first love had always been poetry, but it was not until the age of 58 that this first collection, written over a period of 30 years, was published. Wessex was the "partly-real, partly-dream" county that formed the backdrop for most of Hardy's writings?named after an Anglo-Saxon kingdom and modeled on the real counties of Berkshire, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset, and Wiltshire. The poems deal with classic Hardy themes of disappointment in love and life, and the struggle to live a meaningful life in an indifferent world. Although Hardy's poetry was not as well received as his fiction, he continued to publish collections until his death, and thanks in part to the influence of Philip Larkin, he is increasingly realized as a poet of great stature.

'This collection is a notable expression of Hardy s folkloric imagination and needs to be read outside the collected poems, as he first intended it should be... 'Wessex Poems' is brimful of characters, each with their own distinctive voice' --Tom Paulin
'...a delightful new edition of Hardy's 'Wessex Poems'...The charm of this edition lies principally in the reproduction of Hardy's original engravings. In the 1898 Preface, Hardy wrote: ''The dates attached to some of the poems do not apply to the rough sketches given in illustration, which have been recently made, and, as may be surmised, are inserted for personal and local reasons rather than for their intrinsic qualities.'' The reader is thus enticed to deduce the nature of the 'personal' and 'local' significance of these captivating engravings.' --The Hardy Society Journal
Thomas Hardy (1840?1928) is generally regarded as one of the greatest figures in English literature, and his key works include Tess of the D'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure.
