In Far From the Madding Crowd, which is perhaps Thomas Hardy’s most popular novel, we leave Gabriel Oak and Bathsheba Everdene newly-married. Now, many years on, Bathsheba’s husband and three almost grown-up children have superseded the three diverse suitors of her youth. Bathsheba’s caprice and wilfulness has been replaced with the trials and tribulations of family life. All three children reject the careers chosen for them by their parents to become evermore cosmopolitan in their lives and outlook. As the children mature and make fewer demands on her time, Bathsheba becomes involved with Gabriel’s mission to improve the working and living conditions of agricultural labourers. She strives against prejudice to form a women’s movement to uphold and promote the rights of Union members’ wives. But as Industrialisation filters slowly into Hardy’s Victorian rural scenes, the Oak family find Wessex life is changing forever. Is this change for the better?

Classic edition of Thomas Hardy's impassioned novel of courtship in rural life. In Thomas Hardy's first major literary success, independent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has come to Weatherbury to take up her position as a farmer on the largest estate in the area. Her bold presence draws three very different suitors: the gentleman-farmer Boldwood, the soldier-seducer Sergeant Troy, and the devoted shepherd Gabriel Oak. Each, in contrasting ways, unsettles her decisions and complicates her life, and tragedy ensues, threatening the stability of the whole community. One of his first works set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex, Hardy's novel of swift passion and slow courtship is imbued with his evocative descriptions of rural life and landscapes, and with unflinching honesty about sexual relationships. This edition, based on Hardy's original 1874 manuscript, is the complete novel he never saw published, and restores its full candor and innovation. Rosemarie Morgan's introduction discusses the history of its publication, as well as the biblical and classical allusions that permeate the novel. Far from the Madding Crowd, was listed in the top 50 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.

You remember the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. In the story a beautiful young woman has to choose between three men: one is too boring and creepy, one is too sexy and sleazy and one is juuuuuuuuust right.Oh, wait. Sorry. That's Far from the Madding Crowd we're talking about. In this novel by Thomas Hardy, we have not a love triangle but a love rectangle, where three different men vie for the love of super-pretty Bathsheba. This all goes down in the English countryside, which is supposed to be all birdies chirping and little lambs frolicking, but because of this insane foursome, devolves into insanity, dead babies, faked deaths and jealous lovers shooting people in the chest.The title of Far from the Madding Crowd suggests that life is way easier once you leave the hustle and bustle of the big city behind and go to find peace in the countryside. Ha! Not with these characters. They're playing head games and drinking cider and dealing with so much internal drama that it's a wonder that their crops get planted or harvested at all.When Thomas Hardy first published Far from the Madding Crowd in 1874, he hadn't yet become the really big deal he'd go on to be. It was Madding, though, that gave him his first widespread success. And it's not hard to see why. This novel is more chock-full of juicy drama than a pretty English farm is full of adorable lambs.Thomas Hardy would eventually become famous for writing super gloomy stories like Tess of the D'Urbervilles and Jude The Obscure. And you definitely get some of that gloom n' doom in Far from the Madding Crowd. But you also get a little bit of happiness in the end, a little hilarity in the middle, and a glimpse of rural England that makes it seem less William Wordsworth -style idyllic and more Deliverance-style creeptastic.Maybe that's why this novel launched Thomas Hardy into the literary big league and inspired four film adaptations: the first in freaking 1915 and the latest due for release in 2015. That's right--this is a novel that's been being adapted to film for one hundred years. Maybe it's because Far from the Madding Crowd is a drama-filled English countryside sex nightmare, or maybe it's just because it contains a bunch of cute moments with baby sheep. You be the judge.
