The return of the native by Thomas Hardy( Book )

259 editions published between 1878 and 2021 in 6 languages and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clym Yeobright, the "native" of the title, returns to the countryside where he was born--much as Hardy himself, after a stint in London, returned to his native Dorsetshire to write. Clym falls in love with his cousin, the beautiful but cold Eustacia Vye, who is fatally attracted to the faithless, irresponsible Damon Wildeve. Much of the action is propelled by fate in the form of coincidence, but the characters also have a hand in the catastrophes that befall them

A Laodicean : a story of to-day by Thomas Hardy( )

43 editions published between 1903 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the extended annotated edition including a rare biographical essay on the life and works of the author. In 'A Laodicean' (1881) Mr. Hardy became less spontaneous and charming, although more subtle and, perhaps, more powerful. The heroine, Paula Power, the Laodicean, neither hot nor cold, is a most interesting study in feminine psychology. The three leading male characters-Somerset, the architect, Dare, the adventurer, and Captain de Stancy, the scion of a decayed family-are well drawn

Mayor of Casterbridge, The. Oxford World's Classics by Thomas Hardy( )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set against the backdrop of peaceful south-west England, where Thomas Hardy spent much of his youth, The Mayor of Casterbridge captures the author's unique genius for depicting the absurdity underlying much of the sorrow and humor in our lives. Michael Henchard is an out-of-work hay-trusser who gets drunk at a local fair and impulsively sells his wife Susan and baby daughter. Eighteen years later Susan and her daughter seek him out, only to discover that he has become the most prominent man in Casterbridge. Henchard attempts to make amends for his youthful misdeeds but his unchanged impulsiveness clouds his relationships in love as well as his fortunes in business. Although Henchard is fated to be a modern-day tragic hero, unable to survive in the new commercial world, his story is also a journey towards love. This edition is the only critically established text of the novel, based on a comprehensive study of the manuscript and Hardy's extensive revisions
