"Neutral Tones" is a bleak and pessimistic poem that depicts the end of a love affair and the psychological aftereffects. Thomas Hardy wrote the poem in 1867, though it was not published until 1898 in the collection Wessex Poems and Other Verses. The poem's tone reflects the general skepticism that runs throughout Hardy's work; his novels, such as Jude the Obscure and Tess of the D'Urbervilles, are renowned for their unflinching look at the realities of Victorian life.
