The rural sheep-raising country of this early novel escapes the gloom that permeates the landscape and he characters of such later tragedies as Jude the Obscure and Tess of the D'Urbervilles. But the relentless accidents of an indifferent nature, combined with the ill-fated passions of beautiful Bathseba Everdene and her lovers, create the thwarted purposes and shattering griefs that make this a characteristically powerful Hardy novel.

This fine novel sets in opposition two of Thomas Hardy's most unforgettable creations; his heroine, the sensuous, free spirited Eustacia Vye, and the solemn, majestic stretch of upland in Dorsetshire he called Egdon Heath. The famous opening reveals the haunting power of that dark, forbidding moor where proud Eustacia fervently awaits a clandestine meeting with her lover, Damon Wildeve. But Eustacia's dreams of escape are not to be realized, neither Wildeve nor the returning native Clym Yeobright can bring her salvation.

None of the great Victorian novels is more vivid and readable than The Mayor of Casterbridge. Set in the heart of Hardy's Wessex, the 'partly real, partly dream country' he founded on his native Dorset, it charts the rise and self-induced downfall of a single 'man of character.' The fast-moving and ingeniously contrived narrative is Shakespearian in its tragic force, and features some of the author's most striking episodes and brilliant passages of description.
