A Pair of Blue Eyes is a novel by Thomas Hardy, published in 1873, first serialised between September 1872 and July 1873.

A Pair of Blue Eyes is a novel by Thomas Hardy, published in 1873, first serialised between September 1872 and July 1873. It was Hardy's third published novel, and the first not published anonymously upon its first publication. The book describes the love triangle of a young woman, Elfride Swancourt, and her two suitors from very different backgrounds.

A Pair of Blue Eyes was Thomas Hardy’s third published novel, but not his third novel. This is because the very first novel he completed, he never published, and in fact he destroyed the manuscript. This is significant and helps to explain why the novel seems to lie somewhere between a ‘Novel of Character and Environment’ (that is, something approaching realism) and a ‘Romance or Fantasy’, to use Hardy’s own categories for his fiction.

A Pair of Blue Eyes is the third novel by Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) the brilliantly ironic and skeptical native of Dorchester England.

The first man is Stephen Smith who as an assistant architect meets Elfrida when he encounters her on a church restoration project in distant Wessex.

Thomas Hardy was born on June 2, 1840, in Higher Bockhampton, England. In September 1874, his first book as a full-time author, Far from the Madding Crowd, appeared serially. The eldest child of Thomas and Jemima, Hardy studied Latin, French, and architecture in school. He also became an avid reader. After publishing more than two dozen novels, one of the last being Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Hardy returned to writing poetry-his first love.

Thomas Hardy A Pair of Blue Eyes. These eyes were blue; blue as autumn distance – blue as the blue we see between the retreating mouldings of hills and woody slopes on a sunny September morning. The following chapters were written at a time when the craze for indiscriminate church-restoration had just reached the remotest nooks of western England, where the wild and tragic features of the coast had long combined in perfect harmony with the crude Gothic Art of the ecclesiastical buildings scattered along it, throwing into extraordinary discord all architectural attempts at newness there.
