Like Gabriel's her imagination is given its own poetry, a selfish poetry. Her imagination is precisely imagined, individuated in detail. It is contrasted, as Tess's will be, with the duller articulation and vision of educated orthodox men. She is a symbol-seer, appropriating the moon's eclipse, 'our time is slipping' (Bk 3, Chap. 4) but not a conscious and consistent analyst, and is amazed when Clym Yeobright reads 'friendliness and geniality' into the faces of hills. Her imagination is excited by hearing Clym's and other voices in talk, and Hardy describes it as movement, cyclical process, and a generated excitement.
Neither his rustic storytellers nor his heroes of creativity warble wild native woodnotes, but use imagination rationally as well as passionately, often judiciously and nearly always consciously. Tess Durbeyfield is his best artist. She does not suddenly spring to life towards the end of Hardy's fiction writing but benefits from his experiments with earlier imaginative characters, to develop out of them. One of her most sensitive predecessors is Gabriel Oak, like Timothy Fairway a pastoral leader in his community but also a major character in the novel.
The minor narrators are crucial in the interaction of fictional and actual history, creating and created by a rich felt life. The gossip under the greenwood tree has no very bad news to tell; even the deaths are told with a light touch. In the tragic novels of course the gossips are messengers bearing good and bad news. In The Return of the Native Clym Yeobright is shocked and horrified by Susan Nunsuch's superstitious attack on Eustachia, the news brought to him and his mother by successive articulate and breathless messengers, in the manner of Greek drama and Shakespeare's Macbeth.
