...Thomas Hardy: a Novelist with a Poetic Vision Thomas Hardy, born near Dorchester in 1840, was first an architect, then gave it up for literature in 1867. He first essayed his skill in verse, then in novels, short stories and poems. He was greatly influenced by his family background that formed the base for his success as a writer and a poet. In some respects there is in him a Rousseau, as extreme in his revolt, but different in his self- mastery. Not only does he deny the hope of a happiness founded upon the progress of critical reason; it is the whole of modern civilization that he condemns, and his sore heart seeks, as a wounded animal would, the shelter of the most primitive and untouched...

...Thomas: Religious Skepticism in the Poetry of Thomas Hardy Thomas Hardy's poetry is permeated with the religious skepticism that grew predominant through the course of his life. His early works, such as the poem "Hap," serves as a precursor to the rise of both science and psychoanalysis, while such later poems as "The Convergence of the Twain," written about the sinking of the Titanic in April of 1912, shows the definite influence of both these studies. Hardy uses a poetic format to question the very existence of a divine being while at the same time plumbing the depths of human perception.

In addition, the population must undergo random mating. In the case of a population meeting the above requirements, one can use the expression p^2 + 2pq +q^2 to determine genotypic frequencies. In this formula, let p^2 = homozygous dominant individuals, let p then be the square root of the number used for p^2. Also, let q^2 = homozygous recessive individuals, which means that q is equal to the square root of the number equivelant to q^2. Finally, we can assume... Using the...
