The commune itself is anything of a failure, and the projected courting there among Annie and Dan, the boyfriend who, ominously, fails to fulfill right here on her arrival, is the fruit of 1 of many
misunderstandings within the tale. And the desolate tract itself services like a past due twentieth-century an identical of these ominous antagonistic landscapes within the novels of Thomas Hardy.
