The arrival of two newcomers in the quiet village of Mellstock arouses a bitter feud and leaves a convoluted love affair in its wake. While the Reverend Maybold creates a furore among the village's musicians with his decision to abolish the church's traditional 'string choir' and replace it with a modern mechanical organ, the new schoolteacher, Fancy Day, causes an upheaval of a more romantic nature, winning the hearts of three very different men - a local farmer, a church musician and Maybold himself. Under the Greenwood Tree follows the ensuing maze of intrigue and passion with gentle humour and sympathy, deftly evoking the richness of village life, yet tinged with melancholy for a rural world that Hardy saw fast disappearing.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. The arrival of two newcomers in the quiet village of Mellstock arouses a bitter feud and leaves a convoluted love affair in its wake. While the Reverend Maybold creates a furore among the village's musicians with his decision to abolish the church's traditional 'string choir' and replace it with a modern mechanical organ, the new schoolteacher, Fancy Day, causes an upheaval of a more romantic nature, winning the hearts of three very different men - a local farmer, a church musician and Maybold himself. Under the Greenwood Tree follows the ensuing maze of intrigue and passion with gentle humour and sympathy, deftly evoking the richness of village life, yet tinged with melancholy for a rural world that Hardy saw fast disappearing. Under the Greenwood Tree interweaves the lingering courtship of Dick Dewy and sweet Fancy Day with the battle for survival of the old string choir — the last in the county — against the mechanical church organ of the new vicar. Set amid the farms and woodlands of Mellstock, this sunlit and good-humored pastoral romance came to epitomize for Hardy an irrecoverable English past. This new Penguin Classics edition, based on the two-volume first edition of 1872, includes appendices that reflect the unique textual history of the novel. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780140435535
