Rooted in Thomas Hardy's native Wessex, this novel is the powerful tragedy of a man broken limb from limb on the wheel of his own wrong-headedness. Michael Henchard, a hay-trusser, sells his wife when drunk. Repentant and reformed he rises to become the Mayor of Casterbridge. Then, little by little he loses position, means, respect and love.
