Far From the Madding Crowd (Diversion Classics)

Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms.

Thomas Hardy’s fourth novel and first major literary success follows the spirited Bathsheba Everdene on her journey to Weatherbury to become a farmer on the area’s largest estate. Drawn by her dauntless nature and extraordinary beauty, three very different men seek her heart, complicating the simple life she’s carved for herself in the process. Hardy’s rich depiction of the rural world within Wessex, and stunningly textured characters have made this one of the most influential Romance pieces of its time.
