Description

‘Hardy’s is a world that can never disappear’ Margaret Drabble

Subtitled ‘A Story of a Man of Character’, Hardy’s powerful study of the heroic but deeply flawed Michael Henchard is an intensely dramatic work, tragically played out against the vivid backdrop of a close-knit Dorsetshire town. Its events are set in motion when, in a fit of drunken anger, Henchard sells his wife and baby daughter for five guineas at a country fair. Over the course of the following years, he manages to establish himself as a respected pillar of the community of Casterbridge, but behind his success lurks the shameful secret of his past.

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Keith Wilson
