"Under the Greenwood Tree" (1872) preceded "The Return of the Native" and "Far from the Madding Crowd," as the first of Thomas Hardy's novels set in Wessex. A holiday tale of charm and appeal, "Under the Greenwood Tree" was Hardy's second novel. The book brought him his first taste of literary and public success. The warmly-remembered holiday and love story told in "Under the Greenwood Tree" is sure to please readers today. Full of nostalgia and evocative scenes, "Under the Greenwood Tree" evokes Hardy's sense of place, time, and human relationships, with little of the darkness found in Hardy's later, great works such as "Jude the Obscure" and "Tess of the D'Urbervilles."

Claire Leighton has made sixty engravings for this new edition. She knows the Hardy country intimately and her name is a sure attraction. (Kirkus Reviews)
