Come with me to the beautiful county of Dorset – Thomas Hardy country – to enjoy the company of a spirited heroine, a variety of heroes, comic yokels, and a plot packed with drama. I love Thomas Hardy’s novels, though they often make me cry.
Thomas Hardy regarded himself first as a poet, and secondly as a novelist. I adore his poems, especially when read by Richard Burton, but I also love his novels.
Far From the Madding Crowd is a brilliant study of passion and landscape, rivalry and stubborn love. It captures a rural world that was vanishing even as Hardy wrote. It is one of the warmest and sunniest of his novels, though it still contains a good dose of tragedy as well. Rich, evocative, modern and full of psychological insight, this is a book that everyone should read at least once in their lives.
