Although he built a reputation as a successful novelist, Hardy considered himself first and foremost a poet. You know that I did not intend to wrong you - why have you so wronged me? Farmer Groby's treatment of his hired hands is not as sympathetic as Dairyman Crick's as he tells Tess, "But we'll see which is master here.

    Thomas Hardy wrote in a great variety of poetic forms, including lyricsballadssatire, dramatic monologuesand dialogue, as well as a three-volume epic closet drama The Dynasts —08[37] and though in some ways a very traditional poet, because he was influenced by folksong and ballads, [38] he "was never conventional," and "persistently experiment[ed] with different, often invented, stanza forms and metres, [39] and made use of "rough-hewn rhythms and colloquial diction". These tumultuous changes resulted in an examination of the traditional ways of thinking and acting, and the foundations of English society — family, religion, class divisions, and so on — came under increasing scrutiny.
