Far From The Madding Crowd

Thomas Hardy wrote ‘Far from the Madding Crowd‘ in 1874 – his fourth novel and first major literary success.

Taking its title from Thomas Gray’s poem ‘Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard‘, the novel started life as an anonymously written ¬†monthly serial in Cornhill Magazine, where the story proved popular with readers and critics alike.

The story of the lives of the five main characters Bathsheba, Troy, Boldwood, Oak, and Fanny Robin,¬†‘Far from the Madding Crowd‘ is steeped in the details of rural life that Hardy so relished.
