the ultimate woman farmer romance!

1 Comment

Far from the Madding Crowd is perhaps the most pastoral of Hardy’s Wessex novels. It tells the story of the young farmer Gabriel Oak and his love for and pursuit of the elusive Bathsheba Everdene, whose wayward nature leads her to both tragedy and true love. It tells of the dashing Sergeant Troy whose rakish philosophy of life was ‘…the past was yesterday; never, the day after’. And lastly, of the introverted and reclusive gentleman farmer, Mr Boldwood, whose love fills him with ‘…a fearful sense of exposure’, when he first sets eyes on Bathsheba.

One thought on “the ultimate woman farmer romance!

  1. Ooooh she has all these guys after her.. and the first guy – the poor one is so dreamy… what’s the line from that Dylan song? “I said oh no no I’ve been through this movie before..”
