I absolutely understand why Hardy stopped writing novels after this one. It is entirely and unbelievably melodramatic. How can this be the same author who wrote Tess of the D'Urbervilles and Far From the Madding Crowd and Return of the Native? The story goes that Hardy gave up novel-writing because of the bad reviews of Jude the Obscure, but I think it's because he knew the reviews were right.
