Description
The great Victorian writer Thomas Hardy occupies the unique position of being both a major novelist and a poet. Such masterworks as "The Return of the Native "and "Tess of the D'Urbervilles "make Hardy required reading in literature courses. "The Mayor of Casterbridge" displays all the elements that have made Hardy so enduringly significant and popular: a well-crafted plot, brilliant psychological insight into his characters, an evocative rural English setting, and an absolute command of the novelist's art.



About the Author
Thomas Hardy was born in 1840 in Higher Bockhampton (Upper Bockhampton in his day), a hamlet in the parish of Stinsford to the east of Dorchester in Dorset, England, where his father Thomas (1811-1892) worked as a stonemason and local builder.
