The tragic story of a handful of men and women who live on an isolated Heath in Victorian England. Love triangles ensue between the frustrated Eustacia Vye, discontent Damon Wildeve, naive Thomasin Yeobright, intelligent Clym Yeobright, possessive Mrs. Yeobright, and the shrewd Diggory Venn. Beautiful descriptions of the heathland (which is itself a central "character") by Hardy who carries this novel to a poetic and somewhat depressing close.
