The Trumpet-Major is not one of Hardy's better known novels and I am not sure is deserves to be, however it is beautifully realised with a lightness of touch that makes it a delightful read. In this, Columbine and her lover were typically hotly pursued by authority. In the English harlequinade, Pantaloon became the elderly father of Columbine, jealously guarding his daughter from suitors. Derriman snatches the box and disappears, with Festus and Matilda in pursuit.

He tries to keep the lovers apart, but is always outwitted by the young hero. Finally a sailor comes to tell them that Bob is unharmed — but also that he's engaged to a baker's daughter in Portsmouth. The flaw of unintentional plagiarism in The Trumpet Major is quite evident, although today, when the practice of postmodern citation, known as intertextuality, is widespread and acceptable, Hardy may be excused for borrowing a short printed text and placing it in a new context. The allegations of plagiarism did not affect the popularity of The Trumpet Major.

She had a great variety of these The Trumpet-Major book, the young men being fond of sending them to her as presents until they fell definitely in love with a special sweetheart elsewhere, when they left off doing so. The Napoleonic wars are the fuel that drive the story, but they take place The Trumpet-Major book stage as Hardy moves his troops and characters around events that we hear of second hand, but we actually get to meet Captain Hardy of "kiss me Hardy" fame and Bob tells of his adventures on board HMS Victory, there are many references to Boney, but the slaughter of men in war time is waiting in the wings. John thinks he has a chance with Anne but discovers she's with Bob, so to cover his embarrassment he pretends to be in love with an unnamed actress at the Budmouth theatre. Not only. Festus catches him, but Bob intervenes. The sense of these real recollections is woven into The Trumpet-Major — from Anne Garland and the old sailor watching out for the Victory in the English Channel, to the pervasive fear of press-gangs and imminent invasion, to the news freshly brought of the Battle of Trafalgar and death of Nelsontold with both intimacy and a sense of its historical momentousness.
