Wessex Tales, a collection of short stories including The Three Strangers, The Withered Arm, and The Distracted Preacher, deals with a number of timeless themes seen so often in Hardy's work: marriage, class, revenge, and disappointed love. Many of the tales have a supernatural tinge, and all are set around Hardy's much loved homeland.

    " only rated on the withered arm story. "

    " Most of the stories are imbued with Hardy's characteristic fatalism. My favorite one is the Melancholy Hussar of the German Legion. "

    " Some absolutely spanking Wessex vignettes are to be discovered in this selection. The journey to the house in 'The Three Strangers' is particularly memorable. "

    " I first read Thomas Hardy in my very first course at ASU. It was Critical Reading and Writing About Literature and the professor was a very eccentric woman, Kathryn Harris. I hated that class, but I'm glad she introduced me to Thomas Hardy. "
