Description
Thomas Hardy’s impassioned novel of courtship in rural life   In Thomas Hardy’s first major literary success, independent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has come to Weatherbury to take up her position as a farmer on the largest estate in the area. Her bold presence draws three very different suitors: the gentleman-farmer Boldwood, the soldier-seducer Sergeant Troy, and the devoted shepherd Gabriel Oak. Each, in contrasting ways, unsettles her decisions and complicates her life, and tragedy ensues, threatening the stability of the whole community. One of his first works set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex, Hardy’s novel of swift passion and slow courtship is imbued with his evocative descriptions of rural life and landscapes, and with unflinching honesty about sexual relationships. This edition, based on Hardy’s original 1874 manuscript, is the complete novel he never saw published, and restores its full candor and innovation. Rosemarie Morgan’s introduction discusses the history of its publication, as well as the biblical and classical allusions that permeate the novel.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

display_description"The greatest tragic writer among English novelists."-Virginia Woolf Far from the Madding Crowd is the first of Thomas Hardy's great novels, and the first to sound the tragic note for which his fiction is best remembered."-Margaret Drabble Far from the Madding Crowd, the fourth novel written by Thomas Hardy, is a pensive yet pastoral novel that initially appeared in serial form in the late 1800's. It has since become one of the most popular books of English literature, with its rich rhythms of rural life, beautiful and independent heroine, and romantic intrigue. In Wessex, the novel's apocryphal region of rural southwest England, the independent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has a chance encounter with a virtuous young shepherd named Gabriel Oak; He is taken by her beauty, and proposes marriage, and she refuses. Soon after, Bathsheba moves away to the town of Weatherbury, and Gabriel falls on hard times. Penniless, and roving from town to town seeking employment, he happens to come upon a fire ravaging a farm. Gabriel aids in getting the fire under control, and is stunned to discover that the farm is owned by Bathsheba. Once again, they are reunited, yet now Gabriel is employed as a farmhand. When a second suitor, a local landowner, seeks her affection the inextricable struggles of love and betrayal spins Bathsheba's life into a maze of uncontrollable frenzy and passion. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Far from the Madding Crowd is both modern and readable.
