This study examines the entwinement of issues of voice and metre in Hardy's poetic practice in “The Going,” the first poem in his collection, Poems of 1912-13. Study of metre reveals the modernity of his use of elegy to express a subjectivity that is ironically riven in many intersecting ways between regret, memory, and the present. The essay also considers the links between the emotional intensity of the poem and issues of poetic intention, as well as the issues of voice and speech within the drama of the poem itself.

    • 8 For what it is worth, my own suspicion is that wariness might be bound up with critical disquiet about the thorny issues of intentionality that are themselves bound up with the poetry, in ways I am exploring here.
