9780141393384: Far from the Madding Crowd (Penguin Clothbound Classics)

Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design

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, 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. The first of his works set in Wessex, Hardy's novel of swiftpassion and slow courtship is imbued with his evocative descriptions of rural life and landscapes, and with unflinching honesty about sexual relationships.

Review:

- "Vital, passionate, spirited -- from the moment Bathsheba appears she is beguiling. You can denounce her faults -- she's selfish and capricious -- but it's hard not to admire her determined independence." --"Independent "
- "Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd" is the most romantic book I have ever read. I love the line where he says: "Whenever you look up, there I shall be -- and whenever I look up there will be you." It is very simple and understated, but also incredibly romantic.""" --"Independent "

"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."
