In this epic historical drama in verse form, Thomas Hardy brings the same level of realism and gritty detail to a poetic retelling of the Napoleonic Wars that he honed in novels such as Far From the Madding Crowd and Jude the Obscure. Hardy himself considered The Dynasts to be his masterpiece, and though critical response was initially lukewarm, modern-day readers and critics have come to appreciate the vast scope and literary innovation of this ambitious work.
