Beschreibung

Far from the Madding Crowd is Thomas Hardy's fourth novel and his first major literary success. It originally appeared anonymously as a monthly serial in Cornhill Magazine, where it gained a wide readership. The novel is the first to be set in Thomas Hardy's Wessex in rural southwest England.

Hardy was the eldest of the four children of Thomas Hardy, a stonemason and jobbing builder, and his wife, Jemima (née Hand). He grew up in an isolated cottage on the edge of open heathland. Though he was often ill as a child, his early experience of rural life, with its seasonal rhythms and oral culture, was fundamental to much of his later writing. He spent a year at the village school at age eight and then moved on to schools in Dorchester, the nearby county town, where he received a good grounding in mathematics and Latin. In 1856 he was apprenticed to John Hicks, a local architect, and in 1862, shortly before his 22nd birthday, he moved to London and became a draftsman in the busy office of Arthur Blomfield, a leading ecclesiastical architect. Driven back to Dorset by ill health in 1867, he worked for Hicks again and then for the Weymouth architect G.R. Crickmay.

Though architecture brought Hardy both social and economic advancement, it was only in the mid-1860s that lack of funds and declining religious faith forced him to abandon his early ambitions of a university education and eventual ordination as an Anglican priest. His habits of intensive private study were then redirected toward the reading of poetry and the systematic development of his own poetic skills. The verses he wrote in the 1860s would emerge in revised form in later volumes (e.g., "Neutral Tones," "Retty's Phases"), but when none of them achieved immediate publication, Hardy reluctantly turned to prose.

"Far from the madding crowd" is the story of shepherd Gabriel Oaks and his love to the bewitching Bathsheba Everdene. While visiting relatives, Bathsheba meets their neighbour Gabriel. For him it is almost love at first sight and he offers for her within a week. Gabriel is an amiable young man, really down to earth he knows exactly what to wish for in life: he wants to change from shepherd to farmer, with an estate of his own, a suitable wife to build up a family. Gabriel is a hard working man, with enough confidence in his own strength. He gets his first set back, when Bathsheba, although flattered to have received her first proposal of marriage, rejects him. Shortly after fate turns against Gabriel: He loses all his sheep because of an untrained dog and must bury all hopes of ever becoming a farmer. But Gabriel does not despair - he leaves his home to look for work as a shepherd elsewhere. He finally finds new employment after estinguishing a fire in a farm building. The farm owner is nobody else but Bathsheba, who has recently inherited the estate after her uncle's death. Still secretly in love with Bathsheba, Gabriel must watch how she attracts other men. There is an elderly neighbouring farmer, as well as a dashing sergeant. Has Bathsheba matured enough by now to accept a man in marriage? Can she really make up her mind, who would suit her best? Is her choice a wise one, or may Gabriel still hope? Thomas Hardy gives an impressive description of pastoral life, creates amiable, forceful characters, main as well as minor, and succeeds in keeping the reader interested until the end. (This comment refers to another edition of the book.)
