Thomas Hardy's only historical novel, The Trumpet Major is set in Wessex during the Napoleonic Wars. Hardy skilfully immerses us in the life of the day, making us feel the impact of historical events on the immemorial local way of life - the glamour of the coming of George III and his soldiery, fears of the press-gang and invasion, and the effect of distant but momentous events like the Battle of Trafalgar.… (més)

Hardy once again shows us his talent for evoking imagery and the heartbreak that human biology plays with human emotions. Star-crossed love--the love that the trumpet major has for Anne--is the theme throughout this book. ( )

Continuing my dive into the prose of Hardy, this was a bit of an oddity. Because it takes place in the Napoleonic era, I kept having a Jane Austen type vibe but it was clearly not a comedy of manners. He played a little with that convention (A Misunderstanding, An Overheard Conversation) but it took a number of twists and turns that were much more Hardy. I found myself very frustrated by most of the major characters at one time or another, constantly with the odious creep Festus, but I did get very swept up in it and absolutely did not see things ending the way it did. An interesting read and Hardy continues to surprise me. One thing I did find here was there was a less deft handling of Anne than of some other of his women characters. She didn't come off so well, a bit of a hemmer and hawer, though I did appreciate her defiance of Festus. Just one more in my Hardy collection, though I think I have some short stories left.

Familiar Thomas Hardy themes, three suitors, Festus and brothers John and Robert Loveday all approaching and being treated in different ways by an enigmatic, likeable and sometimes unpredictable Anne Garland. The story is set against the background of threatening French invasion and Napoleon Bonaparte. More specifIcally the Victory, Nelson and the Battle of Trafalgar are in the background with Robert Loveday among the crew. The twists and turns and characters resemble Gabriel Oak, Boldwood and Sergeant Troy in the more polished Far from the Madding Crowd. The trumpet major book engrossed me and has its usual setting of rural life, of idiosyncracies of country folk and great insight into human nature. The underpinning sense of realism means that all does not end well for everyone. ( )

As I’m reviewing this six years after reading it, I can’t offer an in-depth response, but I do remember “The Trumpet-Major” as being an enjoyable read. I’d like to read it again in future – and then I could compose a more insightful review. ( )

In the days of high-waisted and muslin-gowned women, when the vast amount of soldiering going on in the country was a cause of much trembling to the sex, there lived in a village near the Wessex coast two ladies of good report, though unfortunately of limited means.
