Erotolepsy is a term first used by English author Thomas Hardy in his novel Jude the Obscure to describe a passionate sensual desire and longing which is more violent and urgently felt than erotomania.

  Jennie B+ Reviews 19th century England / classic fiction / love triangles / Rural 13 Comments. Dear Reader: Once upon a time (more specifically, late ), my quest for self-improvement led me to Thomas Hardy. “Self,” I said to myself, “you’ve been trying all sorts of classic authors, you’ve tackled a few Russians.   Let me repeat that: all Thomas Hardy. All. summer. long. When you think hazy, lazy days of summer reading, you prrrrrrobably don’t think Thomas Hardy. He is not the most cheerful of writers. To say the least. His books very rarely have a happy ending and – typical to the period he was writing in – women especially do not fare : Maddie Rodriguez.

A writer may have to find the exceptional or novel to make a work interesting but, however much coincidence, horror, fantasy or other bizarre elements are.

An English Victorian author of novels, poems, and short stories, Thomas Hardy () is best known for the classic books Far from the Madding Crowd, The Mayor of Casterbridge, Tess of the d'Urbervilles, and Jude the Obscure.

Set mostly in the semi-imagined region of Wessex, Hardy’s fictional works retain their popularity thanks to an accessible style, Romantic plots, and richly drawn /5(6).

Thomas Hardy, born in the yearwrote both novels and poetry before dying in the yearat the age of 87, after becoming ill with pleurisy in late He was born to Thomas, who worked as a local builder and stonemason and Jemima, his mom.

Victorian novelist and poet Thomas Hardy focused much of his work -- including classics like Far from the Madding Crowd () and Tess of the d'Urbervilles () on man's futile struggle against unseen forces.

Of his rather unromantic outlook on life, Hardy once. "Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd is the most romantic book I have ever read. I love the line where he says: 'Whenever you look up, there I shall be -- and whenever I look up there will be you.' It is very simple and understated, but also incredibly romantic." --Liz Jensen, Independent4/5(K).

Tess of the d’Urbevilles is Hardy’s best novel. It is unmatched in its presentation of tragedy, femininity, and hypocrisy. The prose is blissfully beautiful. The plot is both incredibly sad and compelling. The central characters, particularly Tess.

If you think that Hardy's books are bleaker than real life, you are either fortunate in that you don't know people whose lives are particularly bleak or unaware of how unhappy they are as they have been particularly clever in concealing it. Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy My rating: 2 of 5 stars This classic novel should subtitled, in my opinion, as “A Tale of Three Bad Men”.

It’s not entirely fair to consider a book written nearly years ago from a modernist point of view (or post-modernist if you will).
