Woman Much Missed
Woman Much Missed (Little Black Classics #14) - Thomas Hardy

I'm not very experienced in reading poetry. I can say I like it, but always is small portions. Woman Much Missed collects poems Thomas Hardy wrote after losing his wife in 1912. Therefore, they are all dark in sadness, but beautifully so as Hardy struggles with his loss. There was a lot of symbolism there that I quite liked, but after awhile it was rather heavy and I am wondering if it really is a representative sample of his writing (as it was all inspired by one tragic event).

Touching poems about lost, at times a bit simplistic but touching.

Woman Much Missed (Little Black Classics #14)
Woman Much Missed (Little Black Classics #14) - Thomas Hardy Thomas Hardy, Victorian and Georgian writer of prose and poetry, most famous for his novels Far from the Madding Crowd and Tess of the D'Urbervilles, is grief-stricken by the death of his wife Emma in 1912 and writes the melancholic and haunting poetry featured in this Little Black Classic.

Whilst I prefer my poetry to rhyme, and whilst I can fully appreciate the symbolism and emotion of these pieces, none of them really struck me as being anything other than just poetry. They are as well-written as anything you'd expect from Hardy, but personally I felt no connection with these, nor did any of them strike the very heart of me. They were, however, a delight to read out loud (as I prefer to read my poetry) and their rhythm and diversity was much appreciated.
