Thomas Hardy Society 

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.
