About the Author: Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy, OM, was an English author of the naturalist movement, although in several poems he displays elements of the previous romantic and enlightenment periods of literature, such as his fascination with the supernatural. He regarded himself primarily as a poet and composed novels mainly for financial gain. The bulk of his work, set mainly in the semi-fictional land of Wessex, delineates characters struggling against their passions and circumstances. Hardy's poetry, first published in his 50s, has come to be as well regarded as his novels, especially after The Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The term cliffhanger is considered to have originated with Thomas Hardy's serial novel A Pair of Blue Eyes in 1873. In the novel, Hardy chose to leave one of his protagonists, Knight, literally hanging off a cliff staring into the stony eyes of a trilobite embedded in the rock that has been dead for millions of years. This became the archetypal — and literal — cliff-hanger of Victorian prose.

Una obra sobre conflictos de clase que constituye una indagación en la feminidad.

Unos ojos azules se desarrolla en torno a la consideración, a menudo falsa, que los hombres tienen de las mujeres. Elfride, una bella joven de ojos azules, es la hija del rector de Endelstow, un remoto enclave de Cornualles. Elfride pronto se verá atrapada entre dos hombres, el joven arquitecto Stephen Smith y un viejo hombre de letras, Henry Knight, que arruinaran su amistad por la chica. A lo largo de la novela, surgen asuntos como las relaciones sentimentales entre clases sociales diferentes, la naturaleza del amor o la fatalidad del deseo.

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) fue un novelista y poeta inglés representante del realismo tardodecimonónico. Entre sus obras más importantes cabe destacar: Tess, la de los d�Uberville, El alcalde de Casterbridge y Jude el oscuro.
