The Return of the NativeeBook - 2006
Virginia Woolf once called Thomas Hardy "the greatest tragic writer among English novelists." His atmospheric novels were often considered shocking upon their publication. In this classic, Clym Yeobright returns to Egdon Heath from Paris, intending to settle down and improve the lives of his townspeople. But the alluring and mysterious Eustacia Vye has other plans. Like so many of Hardy's masterpieces, The Return of the Native is both a rich character study and a critical examination of Victorian society.
