The proverbial phrase \'life\'s little ironies\' was coined by Hardy for his third volume of short stories. These tales and sketches possess all the power of his novels: the wealth of description, the realistic portrayal of the quaint lore of Wessex, the \'Chaucerian\' humour and characterisation, the shrewd and critical psychology, the poignant estimate of human nature and the brooding sense of wonder at the essential mystery of life.
The tales which make up Life\'s Little Ironies tenderly re-create a rapidly vanishing rural world and scrutinise the repressions of fin-de-siecle bourgeois life. They share the many concerns of Hardy\'s last great novels, such as the failure of modern marriage and the insidious effects of social ambition on the family and community life.
Ranging widely in length and complexity, they are unified by Hardy\'s quintessential irony, which embraces both the farcical and the tragic aspects of human existence. Introduction and Notes by Dr Claire Seymour, University of Kent at Canterbury.

William Sydney Porter known by his pen name 0. Henry, was an American short story writer.
His wit and plot twists were adored by his readers, but often panned by the critics. Collected Short Stories is a collection of humorous and sentimental stories of sheepherders, cowpunchers, trail cooks, prospectors, outlaws, and Texas Rangers that offer the modern reader a window into American West.
Perhaps reflecting O. Henry\'s own experience as a young man in the middle of nowhere, where women were few and far between, many of the stories are comic tales of romantic rivalry.
