Far From the Madding Crowd

Hardy, Thomas - Far From the Madding Crowd

Another classic converted by

«In reprinting this story for a new edition I am reminded that it was in the chapters of «Far from the Madding Crowd» as they appeared month by month in a popular magazine, that I first ventured to adopt the word «Wessex» from the pages of early English history, and give it a fictitious significance as the existing name of the district once included in that extinct kingdom. The series of novels I projected being mainly of the kind called local, they seemed to require a territorial definition of some sort to lend unity to their scene.»
