Thomas Hardy's first masterpiece, The Mayor of Casterbridge opens with a scene of such heartlessness and cruelty that it still shocks readers today. A poor workman named Michael Henchard, in a fit of drunken rage, sells his wife and baby daughter to a stranger at a country fair. Stricken with remorse, Henchard forswears alcohol and works hard to become a prosperous businessman and the respected mayor of Casterbridge. But he cannot erase his past. His wife ultimately returns to offer Henchard the choice of redemption or a further descent into his own self-destructive nature. A dark, complex story, The Mayor of Casterbridge brims with invention, vitality, and even wit

"Marriage, the Church of England, and the British university system all come under criticism in a story about two cousins who love each other and want to improve their lot in life." "In this haunting love story, a couple who have each fled a previous marriage find love and fulfillment together, only to have tragedy overwhelm them." "Both having left earlier marriages, Jude Fawley and Sue Brideshead find happiness in their relationship. Ironically, when tragedy tests their union, it is Sue, the modern emancipated woman, who proves unequal to the challenge."
