Transcript of Sadoff 2 Thomas Hardy Presentation

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) Worked in London for about ten years as an architectural apprentice Writing Later Life The Man He Killed Interpretation/Impressions Married Emma Lavinia Gifford Had he and I but met
By some old ancient inn,
We should have set us down to wet
Right many a nipperkin!

But ranged as infantry,
And staring face to face,
I shot at him as he at me,
And killed him in his place.

I shot him dead because--
Because he was my foe,
Just so: my foe of course he was;
That's clear enough; although He thought he'd 'list, perhaps,
Off-hand like--just as I--
Was out of work--had sold his traps--
No other reason why.

Yes; quaint and curious war is!
You shoot a fellow down
You'd treat, if met where any bar is,
Or help to half a crown. Theme: War has negative effects Began writing poems about his romance with Eliza Nicholls Wrote his first novel, “Poor Man and the Lady”, too radical to publish 1871, published “Desperate Remedies” and officially became a writer Interest in historical events Work viewed as too pessimistic Early Life Unhappy, grew apart, shut out of work life No children Born in 1840, in Higher Bockhampton Emma died, developed stronger love for her after death Wife's death inspired poems Remarried 14 months later to Florence Dugdale Wrote daily until he died, in 1928 Wrote a total of fourteen novels, most based on people he knew Epic verse about the Napoleonic wars, “The Dynasty” Many war poems Inspired poets such as; Sassoon, Frost, Virginia Woolf, Ezra Pound, and William Butler Yeats U / U / U /

Or help to half a crown. Key:
Caesura/end-stop
Assonance
Alliteration
End Rhyme Influence by parents and physical surroundings Rhyme Scheme: ABABCDCDEFEFGHGHIJIJ Connections The majority of his poems had the topic of death, which was most likely related to the death of his 1st wife, which was the only major death he experienced. That was also the period of time when he wrote a lot of his poems. Lines 1,2,4: Iambic Trimeter
Line 3: Iambic Tetrameter Liked about the poem: Lyrical making it flow nicely and used caesuras to give the effect of him actually talking/thinking His musical background is what influenced him to write lyrical styled poems. His interest in historical events was the reason he wrote so many war poems, and he based all of his novels on the relationships he had with different people. Life and Writings Used end rhyme in all of his poems, sometimes the whole entire poem or just parts of the poems Connections Continued... Lots of his poems have the topic of death. Ex: The Two Soldiers, The Shadow on the Stone, and Her Secret. Similarities between poems Assonance and alliteration
