    Middlemarch de George Eliot (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: These 19th-century classics portray complex romantic relationships with vivid descriptions and a strong sense of place. With intricate, twisting plots, both offer their protagonists bleak outlooks that end in satisfying resolutions.

    The Return of the Native de Thomas Hardy (Porua)
    Porua: I would like to recommend another Thomas Hardy novel, The Return of the Native. When I first read The Return of the Native it kind of surprised me to see how very similar it is to Far from the Madding Crowd. They are very similar in their story lines, characterization and narrative style.… (més)

    La llogatera de Wildfell Hall de Anne Brontë (Lapsus_Linguae)
    Lapsus_Linguae: Both novels feature a strong female protagonist trapped in an abusive marriage. Endings are also pretty similar.

The plot centres on Bathsheba Everdene, a farm owner, and her three suitors, Gabriel Oak (a generous shepherd), Sergeant Troy (a young, handsome, and inconsiderate soldier), and William Boldwood (the owner of the neighbouring farm). The contrasting relationships between Bathsheba and her suitors provide a study of the many faces of love, including honest, heartfelt love and unscrupulous and manipulative adoration. ( )

In this review, I won't go into the details of the plot because most of you will know them and otherwise they can be easily found elsewhere.
Regarding my reading experience, I must admit that I found it quite difficult to really get into the novel, and it took me about 100 pages to develop a feel for it. Still, there were many scenes I liked and I loved the descriptions of the country and Hardy's way with words. Later on, the story picked up and I read the remaining pages much quicker and without needing to pause so much.
Altogether, I enjoyed this novel and I admire Hardy's quest to depict country life and its hardships. The characters are vivid and interesting, and in the second half I screamed in frustration from time to time. I think that the depiction of Bashtheba's feelings, her plight and her situation, are relevant and timeless, as are the other characters.
Some scenes are described so well that they seem almost cinematic, painted with brushstrokes, and these were the ones that really stood out to me (e.g. the storm and the way Hardy describes the flashes and the shadows).
On the other hand, there was always something missing to me: A character that I could really identify with. I felt like a spectator while reading this novel, like being on the outside and watching something - watching the drama unfold without being involved. This is why in the end, it did not touch me as much as other Victorian novels did. ( )

Excellent novel about country life in 19th century Wessex around love stories.
  jgoodwll | Dec 25, 2021 |
Who knew I would learn all about sheep farming in late 19th century England. Of course, the plot is not that, but the setting is a real character in this classic novel.
The cycles of the farm play a major role in marking time and providing opportunities for forward motion in the plot. Hardy's over the top (imo) descriptions are fascinating and leave the reader fully ensconced in this country village. ( )

I managed to get to the middle of it, but now I really want to throw the book out of the window.
Everything was fine (although quite verbose, but that's to be expected from a 19th century book) until Bathsheba met Frank.
And at that moment everything went to hell. Unbelievable conversations for several pages (mostly about "don't - i want to - don't - i want to - then do - i will cause i want to"), stupidest dialogues ever, and Bathsheba all of a sudden behaving histerically and idiotically, because what? That's right, because the author is a man.
So who cares if no woman in history of women ever behaved like this.

Jesus Christ, how did we only survive for so long with literature like this and almost no female authors.
And thank god for Bronte and Austen, they were our beacons of reason in all that madness. ( )

From wikipedia 19 Dec 2011 - Hardy took the title from Thomas Gray's poem 'Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard' (1751):
Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife
Their sober wishes never learn'd to stray;
Along the cool sequester'd vale of life
They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.

When Farmer Oak smiled, the corners of his mouth spread till they were within an unimportant distance of his ears, his eyes were reduced to chinks, and diverging wrinkles appeared round them, extending upon his countenance like the rays in a rudimentary sketch of the rising sun.
On 30 November 1872 a letter arrived at Thomas Hardy's isolated cottage in Dorset that must by any standards be considered astonishing. (Introduction)
Citacions

It appears that ordinary men take wives because possession is not possible without marriage, and that ordinary women accept husbands because marriage is not possible without possession; with totally differing aims the method is the same on both sides.
It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs.
Bathsheba loved Troy in the way that only self-reliant women love when they abandon their self-reliance. When a strong woman recklessly throws away her strength she is worse than a weak woman who has never any strength to throw away. One source of her inadequacy is the novelty of the occasion. She has never had practice in making the best of such a condition. Weakness is doubly weak by being new.
... one who felt himself to occupy morally that vasgt middle space of Laodicean neutrality which lay between the Communion people of the parish and the drunken section... (p. 1)
But a resolution to avoid an evil is seldom framed till the evil is so far advanced as to make avoidance impossible. (p.125)
