Like most of Hardy's novels, The Mayor of Casterbridge is a powerful and harsh study of characters defeated in their struggle with the physical and social environment, victims of their own impulses as well as capricious chance. While drunk, unemployed Michael Henchard sells his wife and daughter at a country fair to a sailor. His remorse leads him to forsake drinking and embark on a fruitless 18-year search for his family. When a reunion at last occurs, it is marked by deception and tragedy.

“A slice of rural life.”

As part of an attempt to broaden my reading, I picked up this classic almost at random, and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Hardy tells the story of a simple farm labourer who sells his wife and goes on to become... More

“Drama, excitement and intrigue”

When I began this book I have to admit that I didn't think the three words I'd be using to describe it would be drama, excitement and intrigue . In fact, I really had no intention of reading this book at all... More
