Klappentext

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