Rate this:
This story of a proud rural beauty and the three men who court her is the novel that first made Thomas Hardy famous. Despite the violent ends of several of its major characters, Far from the Madding Crowd is the sunniest and least brooding of Hardys great novels. The strong-minded Bathsheba Everdeneand the devoted shepherd, obsessed farmer, and dashing soldier who vie for her favormove through a beautifully realized late nineteenth-century agrarian landscape, still almost untouched by the industrial revolution and the encroachment of modern life.
