Thomas Hardy’s Calling Card

What is the poet’s signature style?

Realistic, Historical Poem

Hardy wrote his fair share of war poems—"Drummer Hodge," "Channel Firing," "In Time of 'The Breaking of Nations.'" But he also wrote other poems about major historical events, like "The Convergence of the Twain," about the sinking of the Titanic. Hardy was all about connecting historical events with Big Themes like warfare, tragedy, and all that jazz.
