Thomas Hardy

One of Hardy’s most powerful novels, THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE opens with a shocking and haunting scene: in a drunken rage, Michael Henchard sells his wife and daughter to a visiting sailor at a local fair. When they return to Casterbridge some nineteen years later, Henchard - having gained power and success as the mayor - finds he cannot erase the past or the guilt that consumes him. THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE is a rich, psychological novel about a man whose own flaws combine with fate to cause his ruin.
