Távol a világ zajától


Bathsheba Everdene,miután megörököl egy gazdaságot, úgy dönt, hogy maga irányítja azt. A viktoriánus korban ez merőben szokatlan, nem csoda, hogy Bathshebára sokan felfigyelnek, köztük három olyan férfi is, akiket szinte megigéz a lány elragadó szépsége és erős egyénisége. Az első közülük a gyakorlatias és szilárd jellemű Gabriel Oak gazda, aki miután elvesztette minden vagyonát, birkapásztornak szegődik Bathseba földjére. A második a szomszéd birtok tulajdonosa, a vagyonos és méltóságteljes William Boldwood. A harmadik pedig egy művelt, lovagias és fess katona, Francis Troy őrmester, aki nagy nőcsábász hírében áll.
Bathshebának nincs szüksége férjre, anyagi és lelki szempontból is független, azonban mindhárom férfi megérinti valamilyen módon a szívét. A végső döntéshez drámai és sodró események láncolata vezet, melyek mögé Hardy az egykorvolt vidéki élet vonzó képét rajzolja meg, amire azonban már rávetül az iparosodás kíméletlen árnya.
A gazdag érzelemvilágú és sokoldalú hősöket felvonultató regényt már több alkalommal is megfilmesítették, legutóbb Carey Mulligan alakította Bathshebát.

Tess of the D ´Urbervilles


HarperCollins is pround to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'My life looks as if it had been wasted for want of chances! When I see what you know, what you have read, and seen, and thought, I feel what a nothing I am!' Challenging the hypocrisy and social conventions of the rural Victorian world, Tess of the D'Urbervilles follows the story of Tess Durbeyfield as she attempts to escape the poverty of her background, seeking wealth by claiming connection with the aristocratic D'Urberville family. It is through Tess's relationships with two very different men that Hardy tells the story of his tragic heroine, and exposes the double standards of the world that she inhabits with searing pathos and heart-rending sentiment.

Daleko od hlučícího davu


Román Daleko od hlučícího davu patří k nejzářivějším pokladům anglické literatury. Už jeho první vydání v roce 1874 se stalo literární senzací, kniha se vyprodala během pouhých dvou měsíců a Thomasi Hardymu vynesla reputaci předního spisovatele viktoriánské doby. Čím kniha tolik zaujala ve své době a čím dodnes oslovuje další generace čtenářů?

Hardyho román v sobě úchvatně kombinuje romantickou love story s upřímným, otevřeným vylíčením anglického venkova; nejedná se však o nějakou pastorální idylu, jakkoli je kniha prodchnutá nostalgií. Právě naopak, v mnoha ohledech jde o zcela moderní příběh s ryze moderní hrdinkou – mladá, nezávislá statkářka Batsheba se už dávno zařadila do kánonu velkých postav světové literatury, podobně jako její tři velice rozdílní nápadníci, oddaný pastýř Gabriel, postarší statkář Boldwood a světácký seržant Troy. Spletitý děj plný zvratů, nádherné popisy jihoanglické krajiny i života na venkově, zajímavě vykreslené postavy a dokonalá práce se čtenářovým očekáváním – to vše dělá z románu Daleko od hlučícího davu vpravdě mistrovské dílo, které nepochybně stojí za přečtení i dnes.

Tess of the D'Urbervilles


Hardy's novel tells the story of how John and Joan Durbeyfield became convinced that they are descended from the ancient family of d'Ubervilles. They encourage their daughter Tess to cement a connection with the Stoke-d'Uberville family of local gentry (who it turns out are themselves not entitled to the illustrious name) and she is raped by their son, the unprincipled Alec. It is a connection that returns to haunt her after she has married the pure parson's son Angel Clare.

OWC Far from the Madding Crowd


I shall do one thing in this life - one thing for certain - that is, love you, and long for you, and keep wanting you till I die.' Gabriel Oak is only one of three suitors for the hand of the beautiful and spirited Bathsheba Everdene. He must compete
with the dashing young soldier Sergeant Troy and respectable, middle-aged Farmer Boldwood. And while their fates depend upon the choice Bathsheba makes, she discovers the terrible consequences of an inconstant heart. Far from the Madding Crowd was t
he first of Hardy's novels to give the name of Wessex to the landscape of south-west England, and the first to gain him widespread popularity as a novelist. Set against the backdrop of the unchanging natural cycle of the year, the story both upholds
and questions rural values with a startlingly modern sensibility. This new edition retains the critical text that restores previously deleted and revised passages.

OWC Wessex Tales


In this, his first collection of short stories, Hardy sought to record the legends, superstitions, local customs, and lore of a Wessex that was rapidly passing out of memory. But these tales also portray the social and economic stresses of 1880s Dorset, and reveal Hardy's growing scepticism about the possibility of achieving personal and sexual satisfaction in the modern world. By turns humorous, ironic, macabre, and elegiac, these seven stories show the range of Hardy's story-telling genius. The critically established text, the first to be based on detailed study of all revised texts, presents manuscript readings which have never before appeared in print. The stories include: The Three Strangers; A Tradition of Eighteen Hundred and Four; The Melancholy Hussar of the German Legion; The Withered Arm; Fellow-Townsmen; Interlopers at the Knap; The Distracted Preacher.

OWC Mayor of Casterbridge


The woman is no good to me. Who'll have her?' 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 disc
over 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 fate
d 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.
