But these Tales also portray the social and economic stresses of Dorset in the 1880s, and reveal Hardys growing scepticism about the possibility of achieving personal and sexual satisfaction in the modern world.

By turns humorous, ironic, macabre, and elegiac, these seven stories show the range of Hardys story-telling genius.The critically established text, the first to be based on detailed study of all revised texts, presents manuscript readings which have never before appeared in print.The stories include The Three Strangers- A Tradition of Eighteen Hundred and Four- The Melancholy Hussar of the German Legion- The Withered Arm- Fellow-Townsmen- Interlopers at the Knap- and The Distracted Preacher.
