Reviews of : Two on a Tower by Thomas Hardy PDF Book
Inside this Book – I suspect this novel might highlight the problems of applying all mental energy to the construction of plot and leaving the characters as a secondary consideration – a cheap trick which characterizes lots of modern commercial fiction. Everyone in this novel is shackled to the dogmatic plot. The only thing of any interest for me in this novel was how the plot would pan out. The writing itself was often like wastelands of brambles I had to wade through. Especially annoying was the Old Father Time vibe of the narrative voice with its endless classical allusions and quotations of famous poets. The characters were wooden, the dialogue was wooden. Every time the hero waxed lyrical about his passion for astronomy I felt I was reading stuff Hardy had copied out of an astronomy handbook for beginners. Every decision his two lovers made struck me as little short of preposterous, as if the plot and not inner compulsion was coercing them.
Inside this book –Two on a Tower PDF Book by Thomas Hardy – What intrigued me about this book was Hardy’s characterization of the hero as a budding astronomer in the 18–‘s. There are some fantastic dialogs between the two main characters about the stars and universe. Their sentiments in describing the experience of studying an infinite abyss of stars ring true even today. The story centers on the character of Vivette Constatntine, falling in love and ultimately having a relationship with Swithin St. Cleave, a man almost 10 years younger than herself. I really enjoyed Hardy’s presentation of this scenario. While there wasn’t much surprise in the directions the plot took, Hardy’s fine writing relates realistic characters and one can’t help but sympathize with the twists and turns manifesting in their lives. I was very eager to read through and find out the ultimate fate of these mismatched lovers.
