Thomas Hardy, English novelist and poet, was one of the most highly regarded authors of his era. Much of his work is set in the semi-fictional setting of Wessex, an area in the south and southwest part of England named after the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom that existed in this part of the country prior to the Norman Conquest. His work can be both ascribed to the Victorian realist and Romantic literary movements and is often critical of a declining rural Victorian society. "A Changed Man and Other Tales" is a collection of short stories first published in 1913. It includes the following tales: "A Changed Man," "The Waiting Supper," "Alicia's Diary," "The Grave by the Handpost," "Enter a Dragoon," "A Tryst at an Ancient Earth Work," "What the Shepherd Saw," "A Committee-Man of 'The Terror'," "Master John Horseleigh, Knight," "The Duke's Reappearance," and "A Mere Interlude."
