Product Description

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. The Return of the Native is dominated by the brooding presence of Egdon Heath, located in Thomas Hardy's imaginary Wessex, and in no other book did Hardy's extraordinary feeling for landscape blend so perfectly with his austere, stoic vision of human fate. Out of the simplest, most durable elements--the unfilfilled passion of his heroine, Eustacia Vye, the simplest fidelity or lack thereof in the people around her, the daily rhythms of late nineteenth-century rural life--Hardy builds a drama fully worthy of the magnificent stage on which he places it.

Publisher's Description

Eustacia Vye longs to escape from Egdon Heath, but the man she chooses to save her longs to stay. Out of their struggle, the unfulfilled passion of his heroine, and the daily rhythms of late-nineteenth-century rural life, Hardy builds a drama fully worthy of the magnificent stage on which he places it.

The Return of the Native is dominated by the brooding presence of Egdon Heath, located in Thomas Hardy’s imaginary Wessex, and in no other book did Hardy’s extraordinary feeling for landscape blend so perfectly with his austere, stoic vision of human fate.

Once more he treats his favorite theme of the mismatched couple with masterly pathos and understatement.
