The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy read by Alan Rickman (mp3 audiobook)





The wilds of Egdon Heath seems like a prison to Eustacia Vye, cut off from the world in her grandfathers lonely cottage. When Clym Yeobright returns from the glittering lights of Paris, he seems to offer everything she dreams of: passion, excitement, and the opportunity to escape. However, Clyms ambitions are quite different from hers, and marriage only increases Eustacias destructive restlessness.

Editorial Reviews Review

¡°Most of Hardy¡¯s novels, and particularly the early ones, have a Shakespearean power of creating a unique world and climate of being . . . The Return of the Native is . . . thoughtful, valedictory, poetic, tinged with the somberness of an uncertainty which seems to well up from the depths of the author¡¯s own subconscious . . . Hardy¡¯s sense of the tragic life of human beings, mere small fragments of consciousness in a vast uncaring universe, comes directly from his own youthful awareness of the place and circumstances described in the novel.¡± ¨Cfrom the Introduction by John Bayley --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From the Publisher

This fine novel sets in opposition two of Thomas Hardy's most unforgettable creations: his heroine, the sensuous, free-spirited Eustacia Vye, and the solemn, majestic stretch of upland in Dorsetshire he called Egdon Heath. The famous opening reveals the haunting power of that dark, forbidding moon where proud Eustacia fervently awaits a clandestine meeting with her lover, Damon Wildeve. But Eustacia's dreams of escape are not to be realized--neither Wildeve nor the returning native Clym Yeobright can bring her salvation. Injured by forces beyond their control, Hardy's characters struggle vainly in the net of destiny. In the end, only the face of the lonely heath remains untouched by fate in this masterpiece of tragic passion, a tale that perfectly epitomizes the author's own unique and melancholy genius.
