Un ebook di  Hardy Thomas  edito da StreetLib, 2016

Charles Dickens was another important influence. Like Dickens, he was highly critical of much in Victorian society, though Hardy focused more on a declining rural society.The Return of the Native(1878) is Thomas Hardy's sixth published novel. The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886) is set in the fictional town of Casterbridge.At a country fair near Casterbridge, Wessex, a young hay-trusser named Michael Henchard overindulges in rum-laced furmity and quarrels with his wife, Susan. He decides toauction off his wife and baby daughter, Elizabeth-Jane, to a sailor, Mr. Newson, for five guineas. Once sober the next day, he is too late to recover his family. When he realises that his wife and daughter are gone, probably for good, he swears not to touch liquor again for as many years as he has lived so far . Eighteen years later, Henchard, now a successful grain merchant, is the eponymous Mayor of Casterbridge, known for his staunch sobriety.All these years, Henchard has kept the details surrounding the "loss" of his wife a secret…
