Description
Originally published anonymously in 1871, Thomas Hardy's first printed novel exploits the genre of the "sensational novel," in the mode of Wilkie Collins. It is the story of Cytherea Graye, working as a maid for the woman her father loved but could not marry, who is herself unable to be with the young architect she loves. Desperate, Cytherea marries a widower—whose first wife then miraculously reappears. But is she really his wife? The most intriguing aspect of the novel is that, even in this unlikely gothic context, Hardy began to air some of the ideas and technical experiments that were to characterize his later fiction.
