Description:
Hardy's masterpiece traces a poor stonemason's ill-fated romance with his free-spirited cousin. No Victorian institution is spared -- marriage, religion, education -- and the outrage following publication led the embittered author to renounce fiction. Modern critics hail this novel as a pioneering work of feminism and socialist thought.

Book cover: Under the Greenwood TreeUnder the Greenwood Tree
by - The Macmillan Company
Under the Greenwood Tree is Thomas Hardy's one and only rural idyll, a startling contrast to his other Wessex tales. It appears to be pastoral romance at its most sunlit and good humoured, and called the 'most nearly flawless of Hardy's novels'.

The 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. The story both upholds and questions rural values with a startlingly modern sensibility.
