When asked as to how come the women are able to see a man without looking at him straight, Thomas Hardy explains through his hero in one of his novels saying “..they (women) have their eyes in their ribbons”.Thomas Hardy was certainly correct in all measure as a woman does possess a propensity of realising nearnwess of a man without looking at him straight. Thomas Hardy also made one of his characters in one of his novels say “you favour a woman, you are lost”. That again deals with a very crucial psychological aspect in relation to a woman’s behaviour. The more you are dancingly attentive to her hovering around, the more is the tendency on her part to distance away from you. Count Leo Tolstoy was the other great writer who dealt with his women characters candidly depicting pschychological side of a person. Studied carefully, the views of Tolstoy on this aspect are in many ways identical to that of Hardy.
