Far from the Madding Crowd was Hardy’s
fourth novel, gaining significant
popularity and critical attention. It tells
of Gabriel, an up-and-coming shepherd,
who falls in love with a proud and vain
young beauty Bathsheba, who refuses his
offer of marriage as she values her
independence too much. The novel can be
described as an early piece of feminist
literature and is regularly studied in
schools. This is part of the ‘Young Adult
Classics’ series launched by Naxos
AudioBooks in 2009.
