Thomas Hardy Society  Hardy was prolific not only as a Novelist and as a Poet but also as a writer of Short-Stories. He began publishing Short Stories in periodicals in 1874 and continued to do for over thirty years – in total over 50 Short Stories ranging from the brief narratives of his ‘A Few Crusted Characters’ group – stories told by the occupants of a carrier’s van as they were driven from Casterbridge to Weatherbury to the long novella ‘The Romantic Adventures of a Milkmaid’.

He published the main body of his Short Stories in three volumes Wessex Tales (1888), A Group of Noble Dames (1891) and Life’s Little Ironies (1894), collecting the remaining stories under the title A Changed Man in 1913. Unlike anything else Hardy wrote, A Group of Noble Dames is a story cycle in which the speakers forced indoors by inclement weather tell tales of the eighteenth –century Dorset aristocracy. Hardy wrote in 1893: A story must be exceptional enough to justify the telling. 100 Must-Read Strange and Unusual Novels. The 26 books to read before going to university.
