Thomas Hardy: Wessex Tales (Unabridged)

Preface

An Imaginative Woman

The Marchmill family accordingly took possession of the house…

She thoughtfully rose from her chair…

One day the children had been playing hide-and-seek…

Just then a telegram was brought up.

While she was dreaming the minutes away thus…

On Saturday morning the remaining members…

It was about five in the afternoon when she heard a ring…

The painter had been gone only a day or two…

She wrote to the landlady at Solentsea…

The months passed…

The Three Strangers

The fiddler was a boy of those parts…

At last the notes of the serpent ceased…

Meanwhile the general body of guests had been taking…

Now the old mead of those days…

No observation being offered by anybody…

All this time the third stranger had been standing…

Thus aroused, the men prepared to give chase.

It was eleven o'clock by the time they arrived.

She had remained standing till now…

Chapter 5

After that he went back to the bedroom…

Chapter 6

The tone of her latter words was equivocal…

Chapter 7

Barnet's life at this period was singularly lonely…

Chapter 8

Barnet took the first letter…

Impulse in all its forms characterised Barnet…

Chapter 9

The barmaid sighed again, and raised one of her hands…

The newly-arrived gentleman went back to the hotel…

She gave him her hand and then they sat down.

She watched him safely through the gate…

Interlopers at the Knap Chapter 1

They were travelling in a direction…

Chapter 2

The footfall ceased, and they arose…

His mother gazed upon him in grieved suspense…

Chapter 3

The general conversation thus begun…

The heart of Darton was subject to sudden overflowings.

Chapter 4

When the Christmas holidays came…

As this child learnt to walk and talk…

Chapter 5

He waited and waited to hear from Johns…

Anniversaries having been unpropitious…

The Distracted Preacher Chapter 1: How His Cold Was Cured

Stockdale sat down…

When they were laid open…

Stockdale sat in the deep chair…

Next day he had better fortune…

Chapter 2: How He Saw Two Other Men

Chapter 3: The Mysterious Greatcoat

Stockdale went into his room and lay down as before.

One morning, on looking from his window…

Chapter 4: At the Time of the New Moon

Lizzie soon ascended a small mound…

Stockdale went forward and said at once…

Chapter 5: How They Went to Lulstead Cove

The hired carriers paced along over Chaldon Down…

While Owlett thus conversed…

Chapter 6: The Great Search at Nether-Moynton

By this time not a male villager was to be seen…

The smugglers remained in a blank silence…

Chapter 7: The Walk to Warm'ell Cross and Afterwards

'Well, Lizzie,' said Stockdale…

The road was lonely, and after nightfall…

Stockdale was leaning with his elbow on the mantelpiece…

One day, two years after the parting…

A Tradition of Eighteen Hundred and Four

The next time that she saw him…
