Thomas Hardy et Moi

Recently I contributed to the "Art of the Sentence" series they've got running at the Tin House blog. From the many memorable sentences that came to mind, I chose to say a few words about this one:
“But nobody did come, because nobody does; and under the crushing recognition of his gigantic error Jude continued to wish himself out of the world.”
Thomas Hardy, Jude the Obscure

My thoughts on Hardy's sentence can be found here.
