Far From the Madding Crowd offers in ample measure the details of English rural life that Hardy so relished. The book might also be described as an early piece of feminist literature, since it features an independent woman with the courage to defy convention by running a farm herself. Hardy explores the proper basis for a happy marriage.

Hardy is at his best.The book is riveting.The descriptions of the natural world are glorious, sublime even.Architecture becomes poetry.The background agricultural
Setting lends an almost mystical feeling to the stories of human love and relationships.The book represents the very thin line between sensuality and spirituality and is as luminous as a great watercolour painting or an Elgar symphony.
