  • "This 1887 Wessex novel is set in the small woodland village of Little Hintock, where the woodsman Giles Winterborne has long been unofficially engaged to Grace Melbury. But when Grace's father succeeds in gaining her entry to higher society, he steers her toward a wealthier man . . . with tragic results."
  • ""Tis a pity to let such a girl throw herself away upon him - a thousand pities!" When country-girl, Grace Melbury, returns home from her middle-class school, she feels she is now above her suitor, the simple woodsman Giles Winterborne. Though marriage has been discussed between her and Giles, Grace soon finds herself captivated by Dr Edred Fitzpiers, a sophisticated newcomer to the area - a relationship that is encouraged by her socially ambitious father. Hardy's novel of betrayal, disillusionment and moral compromise depicts a secluded community coming to terms with the disastrous impact of outside influences. And in his portrayal of Giles Winterborne, Hardy shows a man who responds deeply to the forces of the natual world, which, ultimately, betray him. In her introduction Patricia Ingham examines class and gender differences, the influence of Darwinism, Hardy's use of language and the symbolism of nature in the novel. This edition also includes a chronology, a map of Hardy's Wessex, a list for further reading, appendices and a glossary."@en
  • "'There is something I must say to you, Giles,' Mr Melbury said sadly. 'Soon you will not have a house. You will not have a home for Grace to live in. You must not thing any more about getting married to her.' Giles went back to his house and he thought about Grace and about her father's words. He wanted to know about Grace's own plans. Did she agree with her father? Giles wanted to ask her. He decided to meet her if he could."
  • "Translation of an English novel."
  • "Dive into a classic tale of romance from the mind of the writer who penned such favorites as Far from the Madding Crowd and Tess of the d'Urbervilles. This story is set in the rural village of Little Hintock and follows the troubled romance between Giles Winterborne and his longtime love Grace Melbury. Though Winterborne is determined to marry his childhood sweetheart, social conventions and prying family members stand in the way. Will they make it? Read The Woodlanders and find out."@en
  • "Grace Melbury, daughter of a well-to-do timber merchant, returns home from finishing school; and her father arranges her marriage to a young doctor."
  • "Set in the secluded forest community of Little Hintock, Thomas Hardy's The Woodlanders inextricably links the dramatic English landscape with the story of a woman caught between two rivals of radically different social statures. Grace Melbury is promised to her longtime companion, Giles Winterborne, a local woodlander and a gentle, steadfast man. When her socially motivated father pressures her to wed the ambitious doctor Edred Fitzpiers, Grace's loyalties shift -- and her decision leads to tumultuous consequences. With its explorations of class and gender, lust and betrayal, The Woodlanders is one of Hardy's most vivid and powerful works."@en
