The Convergence of the Twain: Hardy and Bainbridge on the Loss of the Titanic

Abstract [en]

It is a commonplace in criticism to see irony and coincidence as pervading features of Thomas Hardy's novels. Fate, circumstance, and disillusionment in the face of life's ironies are embedded in his narratives. The same can be said about Beryl Bainbridge's novels, and it is surprising that this similarity in philosophical vision and mode of narration has never been noted in the attempts made to place Bainbridge in the English literary tradition. Although different in style, Hardyand Bainbridge convey the same sense of determinism and frustration of expectationsas well as sympathy with human shortcomings and the resilience of the individualat the mercy of impersonal forces.
