Thanks for the feedback Dave. It’s his celebration of the pastoral (in keeping with his romantic influences) I enjoy in his novels. Each to their own of course. Which English Novelists do you like?

It seems Hardy fancied himself a poet (but was better at novels)and William Blake thought himself a great painter,(but was a much better poet).

Are you a fan of William Blake? My favourite poem of his is, The Echoing Green.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
