The implied inconsistency here in his use of verisimilitude is itself a possible weakness in his plotting technique. STRUCTURE The structure of a novel is the shape given to its plot or series of events. The structure of Hardy's novel has been said to be described by a curve of expectation which traces the changes in the relationship between, and the aspirations of, Clym and Eustacia from waiting in anticipation and hope to the defeat of any possibility for happiness.
