A Pair of Blue Eyes
by Thomas Hardy

ISBN: 9781853262777
PUBLISHER: Wordsworth Editions Ltd
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 320
DIMENSIONS: 198mmX129mmX17mm 202grams

A Pair of Blue Eyes, though early in the sequence of Hardy's novels, is lively and gripping. Its dramatic cliff-hanging episode, for example, is at once tense, ironic, feministic and erotic. With settings in Wessex and London, the novel also has some strongly autobiographical features, as the blue-eyed heroine, Elfride Swancourt, is based largely on Emma Gifford, who became Thomas Hardy's first wife. Elfride's vivacious nature attracts several lovers, but she is beset by sexual prejudice, and the ensuing ironies reveal the constraints of her times. A Pair of Blue Eyes provides an engaging and moving experience for today's readers.
