Thomas Hardy and American Literature

I realized I dislike both Thomas Hardy novels and American classics for the same reason. Perfectly capable characters make mind bogglingly stupid choices over and over and over and over and over again and the record of the consequences is presented as a tragedy. No it ain’t, it’s a farce.

  1. I feel that on a very deep level. Not in regards to Thomas Hardy I don’t think I’ve read anything of is, but in general, this reaction is on point to so many things

    1. Yes, its kind of my response to anything where the author is trying super hard to be deep, and its just not it.
