Item Details
Description
1879 1st ed Thomas Hardy Return of the Native Egdon Heath Witchcraft Clym & Vye



“The Return of the Native” was admired for its powerfully evoked setting of Egdon Heath, which was based on the somber countryside Thomas Hardy had known as a child. Egdon Heath, a fictional location created by Hardy, is known for widespread witchcraft and superstitions.



His 6th novel, known for its sensationalism and controversial themes, “The Return of the Native” quickly became one of Hardy’s most popular and highly regarded novels. The novel portrays the tragic marriage of Eustacia Vye and Clym Yeobright, the returning native, who is blind to his wife’s needs by his naive zeal and moral fervor.



This 1879 edition is 2 volumes in one published as a part of Tauchnitz’s collection of British Author printings.
