Loin de la foule déchaînée by Thomas Hardy Summary

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Thomas Hardy. "Loin de la foule déchaînée" commence la série de romans les plus typiques de Thomas Hardy, à laquelle appartiennent entre autres "Tess d'Urberville" et "Jude l'obscur". Dans la campagne anglaise de l'époque victorienne, une jeune femme belle et libre, Bathsheba Everdene, féministe avant l'heure, doit diriger la ferme léguée par son oncle. Dans un monde rural hostile, mais inspiré par les magnifiques paysages de la province du Wessex où l'auteur est né, Bathsheba est courtisée par trois hommes: le berger Gabriel Oake qui deviendra son valet de ferme après avoir perdu son troupeau, un riche voisin William Boldwood à qui elle fera miroiter un engagement, et le beau Sergent Francis Troy. Plaçant l'amour et son indépendance au-dessus de la sécurité, de la richesse et des conventions patriarcales de l'époque, Bathsheba refuse d'abord tous les prétendants avant de finir par épouser Troy. Celui-ci se révèle être un mari totalement immoral et sans scrupules qui la trompe et dilapide sa fortune. Opposant une femme romantique éprise de liberté au carcan de la société victorienne, ce quatrième roman de Thomas Hardy, l'un des plus spécifiques de la littérature anglaise et son premier grand succès public, annonce déjà la veine pessimiste qui traversera toute son oeuvre. Il passionnera tous ceux qui s'interrogent sur l'amour et la condition de la femme.

.0000000000Gabriel Oak is only one of three suitors for the hand of the beautiful and spirited Bathsheba Everdene.

And while their fates depend upon the choice Bathsheba makes, she discovers the terrible consequences of an inconstant heart.

Weatherbury Farm by Patricia Dolling-Mann Summary

In Far From the Madding Crowd, which is perhaps Thomas Hardy’s most popular novel, we leave Gabriel Oak and Bathsheba Everdene newly-married. Now, many years on, Bathsheba’s husband and three almost grown-up children have superseded the three diverse suitors of her youth. Bathsheba’s caprice and wilfulness has been replaced with the trials and tribulations of family life. All three children reject the careers chosen for them by their parents to become evermore cosmopolitan in their lives and outlook. As the children mature and make fewer demands on her time, Bathsheba becomes involved with Gabriel’s mission to improve the working and living conditions of agricultural labourers. She strives against prejudice to form a women’s movement to uphold and promote the rights of Union members’ wives. But as Industrialisation filters slowly into Hardy’s Victorian rural scenes, the Oak family find Wessex life is changing forever. Is this change for the better?
