A tale of love and loss – the first of Thomas Hardy’s novels to win him widespread recognition and popularity – reissued to accompany a major motion picture due for release in May 2015.

‘I shall do one thing in this life – one thing certain – that is, love you, and long for you, and keep wanting you till I die’

Independent and spirited, Bathsheba Everdene owns the hearts of three men. Striving to win her love in different ways, their relationships with Bathsheba complicate her life in bucolic Wessex – and cast shadows over their own. With the morals and expectations of rural society weighing heavily upon her, Bathsheba experiences the torture of unrequited love and betrayal, and discovers how random acts of chance and tragedy can dramatically alter life’s course.

The first of Hardy’s novels to become a major literary success, Far from the Madding Crowd explores what it means to live and to love.

Product Description:

A tale of love and loss – the first of Thomas Hardy’s novels to win him widespread recognition and popularity – reissued to accompany a major motion picture due for release in May 2015.

‘Love is a possible strength in an actual weakness.’

Beautiful, impulsive and spirited, Bathsheba Everdene's fortunes are changed for ever when she inherits her own farm and becomes a woman of independent means.

Set in Hardy's evocative Wessex countryside, Bathsheba is pursued by three very different suitors. The reliable and humble Gabriel Oak, the vain and impetuous Troy and the reserved yet determined Boldwood. With the morals of rural society weighing heavily upon her, it is through these relationships that Bathsheba experiences the torture of unrequited love and betrayal, and discovers how random acts of chance and tragedy can alter life’s course dramatically.

Review:

‘“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
