Introduction, Far From the Madding Crowd


`Far from the Madding Crowd` was the first of Hardy`s novels to apply the name of Wessex to the landscape of south-west England, and the first to gain him widespread popularity as a novelist. When the beautiful and spirited Bathsheba Everdene inherits herown farm, she attracts three very different suitors; the seemingly commonplace man-of-the-soil Gabriel Oak, the dashing young soldier Francis Troy, and the respectable, middle-aged Farmer Boldwood. Her choice, and the tragedy it provokes, lie at the centre of Hardy`s ambivalent story. This edition presents a new text of the novel restoring several manuscript passages never before published with the novel and many of the 1901 revisions missing from nearly all modern versions.
