THOMAS HARDY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926
THOMAS HARDY One of the most interesting figures in the'literary world to-day Is Mr. Thomas Hardy, who has celebrated his 80th birthday. Mr. Hardy is spoken of^ as the ' last of the Great Victorians, and In such a designation as well as on account of his venerable age ho seems to belong to a very distant era. Ten- nyson, Dickens, the Brownings, Ruskin and countless others whom one might name, who added to the lustre of the latter portion o'f the 19th century, have all gone _a.nd ,of that brilliant assembly of the past'there remains but Thomas Hardy, the Wessex novelist. True, Bernard Shaw still flourishes, but he is of a slightly later period, being some fifteen years younger than his Illustrious contemporary. A glimpse of the novelist, a little grey man with a serious countenance, suggesting latent-weariness and mel- ancholy hidden under a crust of re- serve Is vouchsafed by Mr. P. T. Hop- kins In "The Scotsman." His figure Is spare, we are told. Sometimes there Is a whimsical glea...
