Thomas Hardy's novels are exceptionally descriptive of nature and emotional feelings of each individual characters and the reflections of life. Under the greenwood tree is indeed a novel so immensely written to picturise the 18th century society and the closeness of the social fabric during that time. It is a superb presentation of various seasons. The feminine character of Miss Fancy and the true love and emotions with Dick Duwey is a classical presentation of the life style and the real world feelings interestingly woven as a love plot with unassumed gesture. I read this novel as a student at the age of 18, and after 42 years, I had the opportunity to read it once again. I am extremely delighted as my mind rolled back to those times. I recommend strongly this novel especially to younger generation to learn many things of life.--Submitted by Dr. Adibhatla Santharam
I watched a T.V. version of Under the Greenwood Tree and the heroine married the handsome young farmer. I do not have the book but I understood that Fancy Day married the wealthy land owner in the end. Can anyone help me with this?:)
