The article examines the use of music in novelist Thomas Hardy's writings of the 1890s as well as the way it operates unconsciously. He explores how the relationship between the ideal and the real can be identified in Hardy's use of music in the poem "The Darkling Thrush," how music is described in a way that invokes unconscious activities of thought and body, and the use of music in some of Hardy's other poems. He comments that music is often the element that provokes inklings of community.
