Wessex Poems and Other Verses (often referred to simply as Wessex Poems) is a collection of fifty-one poems set against the bleak and forbidding Dorset landscape by English writer Thomas Hardy.

Wessex Poems And Other Verses Summary
The collection met a broadly hostile reception, critics being accustomed to Hardy as a (controversial) writer of prose alone. Hardy himself was taken aback by the failure to recognize his dry humor, as in the (slightly bawdy) ‘Bride-Night Fire’. On a more personal note, his wife Emma disliked the section consisting of love lyrics to various recipients; and especially ‘The Ivy-Wife’, which she felt aimed at her. Two notable early poems from the collection (the 1860s) were “Hap” and ‘Amabel’ – the latter exploring the theme of sexual attraction impacted by age taken up by The Well-Beloved. ‘She at His Funeral’ was a tribute to Hardy’s friend Horace Moule; while the bitter “Neutral Tones” and the cheerful ‘Sergeant’s Song’ show further aspects of Hardy’s range of poetic subjects.
