Thomas Hardy in Shanghai

Ian's got a delightful take on author Thomas Hardy; it's exactly the sort of thing I expect I'd write if I seriously attempted to read Hardy, though I doubt I'd have said it so well. As it is, now I don't have to. (Does this make me a Philistine? Possibly so.) I can't comment on Ian's opinion of David Copperfield (the character, not the book), because I haven't read the book, but I suspect I'd feel the same way. (Am I the only one who can't stand Romeo and Juliet because the young lovers are such idiots?)
