The Heart of Thomas Hardy




Stinsford Churchyard
"They fetched it along, and they slipped it in,
Mr. Hardy's heart in a biscuit tin."

Geoffrey Grigson, "Heart Burial".




 Thomas Hardy (not amused).


" 'Tisn't a city, the place I mean, leastwise 'twaddn' when I was there-
'twas a little one-eyed blinking sort o' place".

(Tess of the D'Urbervilles, page 6)


"Wear your Thomas Hardy suit and sit with candles in the gloom.
Summon ghosts of years departed till they fill the empty room"

(Gavin Ewart, The Sentimental Education)
