Arrgh, it's too early in the morning for such awful puns.

I'm generally a Thomas Hardy fan, but tried Jude a couple of years ago and
gave up.

An aside. There's a Mount Hardy off the parkway, and on a hike there a few
years ago, we heard coyotes. Sally was trying to tell the story to someone,
and having trouble remembering the mountain's name, finally coming up with
"Mt. Casterbridge". True story! The guy who was with us will never let her
forget, and that's the name of the mountain for ever more.
