Description
Gabriel Oak is only one of three suitors for the hand of the beautiful and spirited Bathsheba Everdene. He must compete with the dashing young soldier Sergeant Troy and the respectable, middle-aged Farmer Boldwood. And while their fates depend upon the choice Bathsheba makes, she discovers the terrible consequences of an inconstant heart.Far from the Madding Crowd was the first of Hardy's novels to give the name Wessex to the landscape of southwest England and the first to gain him widespread popularity as a novelist. Set against the backdrop of the unchanging natural cycle of the year, the story both upholds and questions rural values with a startlingly modern sensibility.

display_description This "is the sunniest and least brooding of Hardy's great novels. The strong-minded Bathsheba Everdene--and the devoted shepherd, obsessed farmer, and dashing soldier who vie for her favor--move through a late nineteenth-century agrarian landscape, still almost untouched by the Industrial Revolution and the encroachment of modern life"--Amazon.com.
