About this product
- DescriptionOne of Hardy's most powerful vels, <i>The Mayor of Casterbridge</i> 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 cant erase the past or the guilt that consumes him. <i>The Mayor of Casterbridge</i> is a rich, psychological vel about a man whose own flaws combine with fate to cause his ruin.
