Thomas Hardy: The Time-Torn Man

CHARACTERS Thomas Hardy: The Time-Torn Man 107 Claire Tomalin É 7 CHARACTERS Illegitimate birth his rural upbringing his escape to London in the 1860s his marriages his status as a bestselling novelist and in later life his supreme achievements as a po. As I have said before I am woefully poorly read in the classics so when one of my favorite librarians chose Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy for his May book discussion I determined to read it all the way through even though one of my much better read friends said he remembered his reading of it when he was a teen as being a depressing slog Depressing Oh yes I d say that is even an understatement There is one point in the book and those who have read it will surely know the part I mean when I was so shocked I just closed up my heart to the rest of the story It was too painful to be very closely involved with the characters after that Jude had intrigued me though because there are two chief themes in the book one a uestioning of Victorian religious and in particular marriage customs the other a harsh look at the impossibility of social mobility in a class conscious society as Victorian England was I think marriage customs have become open but social mobility still seems to be an issue The discussion from our reading of Jude was animated and thought provoking so our librarian had chosen well This reading made me wonder about Thomas Hardy himself and when I was casting about for a biography I saw that the wonderful Claire Tomalin had written one so my next book was at once chosen I had read Tomalin s bio of Samuel Pepys and found it fascinatingThis biography gives great insight into the aspects of Hardy s life he lived from 1840 to 1928 that influenced his writing He came from a humble village background His mother had been in service and advanced to being a cook Her dream was to move to London to be a cook in a men s club Alas she got pregnant with Thomas and uickly married never leaving her village Hardy s father was a builder and much mild mannered than his strong willed wife She advised all of her children against marriage Thomas s brother and two sisters did not in fact ever marry Thomas however disappointed her by marrying and marrying a woman of whom she disapproved although one wonders if she would have found any woman acceptable Thomas had become an architect s assistant which was a step above his father who was a builder His mother saw that her daughters had teacher training so they would not have to go into service as she had Thomas s brother became a builder with his father All of the family other than Thomas stayed in the area in which they d been born and even Thomas moved back to the area later in life After his architectural training Thomas worked in London for five years but had already determined to leave London when he was sent to evaluate a small church in Cornwall for restoration work While there he met his future wife the sister of the the rector s wife who was living at the vicarage with her sister and brother in law Thomas courted her for four years Both families disapproved of the match and when they finally married none of their parents attended the wedding Thomas had been writing for some years while still working as an architect s assistant Emma his new wife strongly encouraged his writing and made good copies of his manuscripts to send to publishers Most of his books ran as serials in magazines in England and later in America as well before appearing in book form Soon enough he was making enough money to give up his architectural work Still he preferred writing poetry and later said he had written novels only to make a livingReturning to Jude the Obscure I found out that it was his last novel published in 1895 The critics panned the book calling it Jude the Obscene Yet it sold well After Jude Hardy abandoned novel writing and spent the rest of his life writing poetry He actually became very rich and famous by the end of his life and against the express written wishes in his will was buried in Westminster Abbey although his heart was removed from the body before cremation and buried with his first wife Emma in the village parish graveyard It was kind of gossipy fun to read of all the literary connections he made through his long life he lived into his late eighties His marriage to Emma was successful at first but gradually devolved into her moving into a room in the attic of the home they had built and the two living rather separate lives Hardy in his later years had an eye for young women and attempted liaisons only to find the women involved were interested in his literary persona not his sexual one Well the women he chose were usually young enough to be his daughter and later his granddaughter He and Emma never had children a great disappointment to both of them Even before Emma had died he had formed a close relationship with a very young admirer Florence Dugdale nearly 40 years his junior They married after Emma s death even though the death brought many overwhelming memories of his early love back to Hardy and spurred him to write a series of poems about those memories much to the dismay of his new wife Hardy was apparently a uiet polite introspective man one who was pleasant to meet and who abided by societal rules which is not what you might expect when you consider the themes of his novels Tomalin s account of Hardy s life was engrossing and well written Now I feel ready to tackle Far From the Madding Crowd before seeing the new film Sasquatch for Dinner in the 1860s his marriages his status as a bestselling novelist and
