Yay! :clap: Thank you, Sonia, for inviting me over to help finish this. I had a lovely time recording these. :9:

If you want a thoroughly grammatically correct summary, I have made a few tweaks:
Published in 1914, this is a compilation of 107 poems by Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), who is probably better known as the author of such famous novels as <i>Tess of the d'Urbervilles</i> and <i>Far from the Madding Crowd</i>.

Similar to his novels, the underlying themes of the majority of the poems in this collection are death, departure and unfulfilled love, while the central piece is comprised of the 15 short "Satires of Circumstance," funny poems with a bittersweet touch.

The poems have been recorded by our trio of readers John Burlinson, Tomas Peter and Sonia. As an interesting touch, some poems can be considered short dramatic readings, and as such have been performed as dialogues.

thanks Tomas ! Luckily there was not that much wrong LOL And in the beginning I had "as" Tess, and later on changed it to "like", so I wouldn't have "as" twice in that sentence LOL I should have gone with my first gut feeling.

Ann, can we still change the blurb please ?
