Thomas Hardy Ô Far from the Madding Crowd doc

Far from the Madding Crowd was Thomas Hardy's first major literary success and it edited with an introduction and notes by Rosemarie Morgan and Shannon Russell in Penguin ClassicsIndependent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has come to Weatherbury to take up her position as a farmer The heart wants what the heart wantsNo that is not from this book I just thought it would have been a good tagline for the 2015 movie adaptation of this classic they went with Based on the classic love story by Thomas Hardy instead Serve you right you silly cowThat is also not from the book but it's a sentence that popped into my mind while reading some later parts of the book Fuck off BoldwoodStill not from the book but I wish it was It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirsNow that is from the book which is brimming with uotable lines Not being a woman I don't know how true it is but I find this one very interesting Thomas Hardy was not a woman either unlike George Eliot but I am sure he had much better insight than I doFor some clarification of this uote please refer to the comments section after the reviewThis is the latest of my ongoing project to read classic books in audiobook format I find that printed books reuire patience and commitment Far from the Madding Crowd is basically the story of Bathsheba Everdene and how her three suitors affect her life This is my second Thomas Hardy book Jude the Obscure was the first I found Jude the Obscure very depressing though uite a gripping read I am glad to report this book is somewhat upbeat somewhat being the operative word What a gloom merchant Hardy seems to be was he a buzz killer at parties? I can not fault his talent as a writer though his prose is consistently beautiful and elegant his characters are well developed and vivid His plot twists and turns are often unpredictableLooking at the protagonist Bathsheba Everdene considering her wit and intelligence how she ends up choosing to marry the worst of the three suitors is hard to imagine Obviously in the context of the book she is dazzled by Troy's oily charms but I find it a little out of character and feel like she chooses him to drive the plot forward If she had chosen the best man out of the three we would have ended up with a short story of noneventMay 1 2015 that isOf the other two that Boldwood seems to have a very appropriate name His wood makes him bold sorry His bullying Bathsheba into submission is hard to take apparently he his a man driven by passion or his little fireman Gabriel Oak is the perfect gentleman throughout I am not surprised Bathsheba does not choose him to begin with he seems like a safe and dull choiceIf the overall plot of the book seems like a soap opera I may have misrepresented it There is a lot of psychological insight here about human nature and how we often make the wrong choices based on superficiality As mentioned earlier this novel is not as grim as Jude the Obscure the first half of the book is in generally good spirit the story becomes very dark towards the end of the book but ended on a moderately cheerful note I find the ending a little predictable but very satisfying I imagine most readers would want the book to end just like this and perhaps Hardy did not want to alienate his readers too much and indulge in a gloomy ending as seems to be his wontAn enjoyable book to read when you are in the mood for a classic or some pastoral mayhemI have not read Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles yet but it sounds really depressing Can't waitNotes I do love to read Hardy's uniue brand of depressing fun if you like this review I hope you will check out my other Hardy reviews• Tess of the D'Urbervilles • Jude the Obscure• The Mayor of Casterbridge • The Return of the Native • The Woodlanders • I have not seen any of the film adaptations if you have please let me know what you think in the comments thanks
