Details: Product Description The bold and beautiful Bathsheba Everdene has arrived at weatherbury, creating a stir in the idyllic community of the countryside. Enamored by bathsheba's irresistible charm and wild, uninhibited spirit, three men are drawn to her—the humble shepherd Gabriel oak, who is eight years younger to her; the farmer William boldwood, who mistakes her prank for a proposal of marriage; and a Casanova in uniform, Sergeant Francis Troy. Will the fierce and independent Bathsheba finally fall in love? Who will she choose? Part warm and heartening, and Part tragic, far from the Madding crowd is a story that shows the many faces of love. Considered one of the greatest love stories in English literature, this book has been a resounding success since its first publication. About the Author An architect by profession, Thomas Hardy was once regarded as the greatest living writer of fiction in the English-speaking world. He was born in Dorset, England, on 2 June 1840. Some of his most memorable works include A Pair of Blue Eyes (1873)—the first to be published in his name; Far from the Madding Crowd (1874)—his first literary achievement; The Return of the Native (1878); The Trumpet Major (1880); The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886); The Woodlanders (1887); Tess of the d’Urbervilles (1891); and Jude the Obscure (1895). Hardy spoke and wrote for the masses. With an aim of realizing the truth, he captured the reality of his era in his tragic art. He breathed his last on 11 January 1928.
