Far from the Madding Crowd, Hardy' s passionate tale of the beautiful, headstrong farmer Bathsheba Everdene and her three suitors, firmly established the thirty-four-year-old writer as a popular novelist. According to Virginia Woolf, " The subject was right; the method was right; the poet and the countryman, the sensual man, the sombre reflective man, the man of learning, all enlisted to produce a book which . . . must hold its place among the great English novels.“ Introducing the fictional name of ” Wessex" to describe Hardy' s legendary countryside, this early masterpiece draws a vivid picture of rural life in southwest England.This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the 1912 Wessex edition and features Hardy' s map of Wessex.
