The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy‘I’ve not always been what I am now’
In a fit of drunken anger, Michael Henchard sells his wife and baby daughter for five guineas at a country fair. Over the course of the following years, he manages to establish himself as a respected and prosperous pillar of the community of Casterbridge, but behind his success there always lurk the shameful secret of his past and a personality prone to self-destructive pride and temper. Subtitled ‘A Story of a Man of Character’, Hardy’s powerful and sympathetic study of the heroic but deeply flawed Henchard is also an intensely dramatic work, tragically played out against the vivid backdrop of a close-knit Dorsetshire town.
This edition includes an introduction, chronology of Hardy’s life and works, the illustrations for the original Serial Issue, place names, maps, glossary, full explanatory notes as well as Hardy’s prefaces to the 1895 and 1912 editions.

This is one of my sister's favorite novels, and I've still never read it. Now, I have to in order to watch the DVD, which sounds terrific. I appreciated the background on Hardy and where his works fit into the philosophical spectrum. I guess I would describe myself as a "meliorist" also--I'll have to think about this with regards the Hardy novels I have read, Tess being my favorite. So cool that you got to visit Lacock.
