Product description

The central figure of this novel is the returning "native", Clym Yeobright, and his love for the beautiful but capricious Eustacia Vye. As character after character is driven to self-destruction, the presence of Egdon Heath becomes all-embracing, while Clym becomes a preacher.

Leak and savage, Egdon Heath seems to breathe darkness and it claws back those who rise above it. Against this background Hardy's players come together, weaving a web of deceit and death.
