Hardy's Ruined Maid
Added by: Anne Kaye
I first heard this poem, beautifully performed, about thirty years ago, and it has remained in my mind. I think it is a brilliant evocation of the lure and corruption of sophisticated life. It applies just as much today, to publicity seekers who think they have exclusive rights to the word Posh, to television presenters, actresses and the rest of the gang who fill the pages of our tabloids.
