Reader's note

This fantastic drama by Thomas Hardy is too ambitious to have been fully performed anywhere! The story spans over 10 years during the Napoleonic War, and follows a large cast of characters. It also features supernatural spirits from the overworld! The journey starts will passengers talking on a train - Yes. It is because the King and Court are coming down here later on. They wake up this part rarely!... See, now, how the Channel and coast open out like a chart. That patch of mist below us is the town we are bound for. There's the Isle of Slingers beyond, like a floating snail. That wide bay on the right is where the “Abergavenny,” Captain John Wordsworth, was wrecked last month. One can see half across to France up here.
