About This Item

Wordsworth Editions Ltd. New. Wordsworth Press, Paperback, 2012, Book Condition: New, With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex, A Pair of Blue Eyes, is lively and gripping. Its dramatic cliff-hanging episode, for example, is at once tense, ironic, feministic and erotic. With settings in Wessex and London, the novel also has some strongly autobiographical features, as the blue-eyed heroine, Elfride Swancourt, is based largely on Emma Glifford, who became Thomas Hardy's first wife. Elfride's vivacious nature attracts several lovers, but she is beset by sexual prejudice, and the ensuing ironic reveal the constraints of her times. . 1998. TRADE PAPERBACK.

Synopsis

A Pair of Blue Eyes is a novel by Thomas Hardy, published in 1873. The book describes the love triangle among a young woman, Elfride Swancourt, and her two suitors from very different backgrounds. Stephen Smith is a socially inferior but ambitious young man who adores her and with whom she shares a country background. Henry Knight is the respectable, established, older man who represents London society.
