Thomas Hardy, William Barnes and the Sea; Dorset


A new article on the William Barnes Society website

"I've been thinking for some time how little Barnes wrote about the sea or the Dorset coast. Thomas Hardy wrote much more. Barnes was always more fascinated and inspired by 'the sounds of flowing water', by rivers, brooks and streams, as well as by mills and water lilies - and of course by the countryside around the Blackmore Vale. He writes affectionately of the Stour and the Frome, the Lydden and Caundle Brook".
