The Mayor of Casterbridge
The Life and Death of a Man of Character
Set in the fictional town of Casterbridge (based on the town of Dorchester in Dorset), this is one of Hardy's Wessex novels.
Henchard is a strong man brought low by his own faults of character and human failings. The book is a mix of love and conflict, fate and tragedy all contained within Hardy's unique area of Wessex.--Submitted by Anonymous
