Interlopers at the Knap
In this brilliant short-story, Hardy beautifully employs irony to portray man's lack of control over himself and his circumstances. In this brilliant short-story, he presents a well-knitted plot and comprehensively drawn characters. A part of the Wessex Tales, this brilliant work is engrossing and captivating!
