9780140860887: Far from the Madding Crowd (Penguin Classics)

Capricious and handsome Bathsheba Everdene, the new young mistress of the Upper Farm, is a disquieting presence in the village of Weatherbury. Through her relationships with three suitors--the shepherd Gabriel Oak, the yeoman farmer Boldwood, and dashing Sergeant Troy--she discovers the difference between seduction and courtship; between infatuation and romance carved from "hard prosaic reality".

‘“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
