Review:

"Wonderful, comprehensive edition at reasonable cost to students. The chronology, maps, notes on text, and introduction by the talented Dale Kramer make this edition a great value for the money." --Bonnie W. Epstein, Plymouth State College

From the Back Cover:

A classically shaped story about the rise and fall of Michael Henchard, a man marked out for a complicated fate, 'The Mayor of Casterbridge, ' is an emblematic product of Hardy's fictional maturity - vigorous, forceful, and unclouded by illusions.
