Happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain. #thomashardy #themayorofcasterbridge

Thomas Hardy's former study at his longtime Dorset home, Max Gate, a house he designed and where he lived from 1885 until his death in 1928...#ThomasHardy #JudetheObscure #TessofthedUrbervilles #TheMayorofCasterbridge #FarfromtheMaddingCrowd 📝🏠📚🏘✍🏼

How I like my dinner: rustic, cozy, with warm soup and a Thomas Hardy book.

•"Like all people who have known rough times, lightheartedness seemed to her too irrational and inconsequent to be indulged in except reckless dram now and then; for she had been too early habituated to anxious reasoning to drop the habit suddenly. She felt none of those ups and downs of spirit which cause; never - to paraphrase a recent poet - never a gloom in Elizabeth-Jane's soul but she well knew how it came there; and her present cheerfulness was fairly proportionate to her solid guarantee for the same."
~ Thomas Hardy, The Mayor Of Casterbridge.

In my reading list. This is gonna be my 4th Hardy novel. Loved the other three. #books #thomashardy #englishliterature #classicliterature #themayorofcasterbridge

Around December of last year I posted my Penguin English library collection. So now to open the December month here's my updated collection!! 🎅🏻🎁😁

I buy #thriftstore #paperback #books, esp #classics; in fact, it’s one of my small pleasures in life. I eagerly snatched up #themayorofcasterbridge by #thomashardy today because I have been wanting to #read it FOREVER only to find when I got home that it had been #annotated severely, roughly, and throughly. while I appreciate an engaged reader, this abomination is only fit for the garbage can, sweetie. #tragedy #sophoclean #literally #rookiemistake #thisiswhathoarmeans #getoffmylawn

'morning | Il a plu toute la nuit. Ce matin, réveil en mode hérisson, avec mon ami Thomas Hardy et le caractériel Henchard, avant de me préparer pour le brunch des familles 🦔🦔🦔
I did not realize that I already knew Thomas Hardy's writing : Tess of the d'Uberville is no stranger to me ! 🌾🍂📖
#thomashardy #lemairedecasterbridge #archipoche #themayorofcasterbridge

Jour de pluie | Après Divakaruni (que j'ai aimé d'amour), je me lance dans Le maire de Casterbridge de Thomas Hardy (1886), dont j'ai déjà parcouru une centaine de pages. Jeune homme porté sur l'alcool, Henchard commet l'impensable et vend sa femme à un marin. Lasse de son détestable époux, Suzanne s'en va avec leur fille. Au lendemain de la beuverie, Henchard réalise la chose terrible qu'il a faite et cherche en vain à retrouver sa femme et sa fille. Puis nous retrouvons les protagonistes 18 ans plus tard... 🌧️🌾🍂
The weather is awful and although I like fall, I feel like I really need some sun in my heart ! I did not pick the right book for that, because The Mayor of Casterbridge begins with the selling of a wife by her drunk husband, so not fun... 🦔☔📖

Warmer weather means cider and reading in the backyard.
This was seconds before I turned myself into cider flavoured human. There goes half the bottle. Make sure your ground is even yo.

I seem to have started an orange Penguin paperback collection by happy accident this week. I have been to a couple of charity shops and they both had a few so i decided to pick them up as they were all less than £1. The two at the bottom are ones i already had. Are there any of your favourites in this stack?

Happy Happy Bookstore Employee

Who's that girl? It's Katie!

See below for book review... #booklover #reader #FavoriteBookFriday #tatteredcover #bookstore #thomashardy #mayorofcasterbridge #bookreview

#Repost from @tatteredcoverbookstore with @regram.app ... Happy #FavoriteBookFriday! Katie is brimming with favorite books and this week she chose THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE by Thomas Hardy. .
.
"I've read this book at least 5 times now; it's a classic that I love coming back to. A man drunkenly sells his wife and infant daughter at a fair. The next morning, realizing what he's done, he makes a vow to not drink for the next 21 years. Over these years, he rises to be a well respected man and the mayor of the town. Excellent drama ensues as the wife and daughter return and their lives are entwined. This book is so great to me because it is like reading an intense soap opera full of plot twists and turns. The writing is also excellent, full of wonderful descriptions and lots of allusions. The characters are real and flawed and so much fun to follow." - Katie.

The Mayor of Casterbridge
What will you think about a drunk man who auctions his wife and child for five guineas.
This is the journey about Michael Henchard, who searchs for his wife the next day when his senses come to wits. The wife and the child were gone and so was the sailor Newson who brought them.

Story then moves eighteen years ahead when the child Elizabeth-Jane and wife Susan are looking for Henchard, after the disappearance of Newson at the sea believing him dead.

Fate did well for Henchard he is now the Mayor of Casterbridge, a wealthy and powerful merchant, whose having some trouble with his crop these days.
Donald Farfrae a Scotsman comes forward to help who is later appointed as Henchard's manager.
Story about Henchard dealing with his impulsive behavior, wealth, anger, remorse jealousy, insecurity, hatred and later on poverty. His life coming full circle in the end.

I didn't particularly loved or hated any character.
Each one of them Henchard, Susan, Lucetta had their own secrets to hide.
Farfrae on the other hand being the complete opposite of Henchard and his true competition in every way should have choosen Elizabeth-Jane his first choice instead of Lucetta.
Elizabeth should have shown some dignity about staying in Lucetta's house even after Farfrae was courting her and even marrying him afterwards.
A typical Hardy tale.
Perfectly written with every pinch of tragedy at the right place.
Rating: 5/5

Which one should I start?
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens or Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte.

Or shoulder I be writing the reviews of the ones I have completed ?

I just finished 'The Mayor of Casterbridge'. Hardy's stories always have a melancholy feel to them. Soul soaking stories.
He is my favorite when it comes to classic literature. .

Do you prefer second hand books?

I don't mind them if they are in good condition.
This one I got at a fairly decent price and its as good as new.

I got fascinated by the thought of it being in some other part of the world, someelse's companion, in completely different scenarios. .

This week we're featuring a classic for #whatwerereadingwednesday: Thomas Hardy's The Mayor of Casterbridge. The titular mayor drunkenly sold his wife to a sailor for five guineas and swore a twenty year vow of sobriety in repentance. Those twenty years are almost up, and who should come looking for him but his long-lost wife and daughter? But what the mayor might have regretted losing eighteen years ago is likely to throw a wrench in his current plans.

#thomashardy #themayorofcasterbridge

Slower than a melodrama. :( But not too bad. #bookstagram #classicreads #themayorofcasterbridge

The Mayor of Casterbridge - Thomas Hardy (1886)
33/50
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
.
You should read this if you haven't read a Thomas Hardy in a while and want a revisit to Wessex with all the inns and all seeming idyllic imagery. This one took me a while to get into but from quite early on there are so many gossipy throws and surprises in addition to such strong characters that it was quite a quick read for me. Probably not the best choice for a first time reader.
.
You shouldn't read this if you're feeling insecure or in a downtrodden place - you'd be in for a rough and depressing read. I personally have never felt utterly low reading Hardy (stone cold maybe!) because the language is so beautiful and entire novels just flow. The plot chronicles the repercussions of one man's drunken mistake and throughout the novel more and more selfish decisions and lack of clarity and security leads to him slowly losing everything.

Sunday reading 📖 Hope you all had a lovely weekend and great start to the week 😊 #cafe #cafestagram @bluebottle @bluebottlela #mocha #latteart #reading #books #literature #themayorofcasterbridge #thomashardy

We had Teachers' Day celebrations in school today and for the first time in my life, I received a white chrysanthemum! My favourite flower has always been the sunflower because of its cheeriness, but reading up on the 'mum, I found out that it's a symbol of truth and strong life and I'm loving it! I've been teaching for a long while now, although in different places, and in the next month I'll have to make a decision whether I want to continue doing this for one more year. I'm hoping this one week of break would give me time to rest, reflect and of course read. And then I'll be in a better state of mind to be making the (hopefully) right decision.
📖
Books that I plan to read are two recent random finds: Love in a Cold Climate and The Mayor of Casterbridge.

"I, Michael Henchard, on this morning of the sixteenth of September, do take an oath here on this solemn place that I will avoid all strong liquors for the space of twenty years to come, being a year for every year that I have lived. And this I swear upon the Book before me; and may I be stricken dumb, blind and helpless if I break this my oath." (page-18)

"I won't be a slave to the past. I'll love where I choose." The Mayor of Casterbridge, Thomas Hardy

I have always loved Hardy and spent many a teenage year working my way through his collection. I decided it was time this week to revisit one and decided on #themayorofcasterbridge
because i had read it the least. I love how the plot is always moving forward, characters are interwoven and when you feel you know where you are, the next secret comes out. His descriptive writing is faultless and i was not disappointed on a second read. The pretty hydrangea is out of my parents garden 🏵

Happy Wednesday!! I decided not to continue reading Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk. I don't like the writing style, at all!! It's written in a some kind of broken english style. I tried to read it for two days and everytime I read it I kept thinking what the flipping heck am I reading?!? I just couldn't get through it. I can barely understand it. So, I decided to put it down and I think this is the first time I didn't finish a book in probably two or three years.

Today I started The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy. I've read Far from the Madding Crowd before and really enjoyed it, so I hope I'll enjoy this one too. Has anyone read Pygmy or The Mayor of Casterbridge? What's your thought?

Today I'm leaving to start my holidays!🎉 We're spending a few days on Lake Garda and then another few days in the mountains. I seriously need to take my mind off things. I leave you with these beautiful Hardy editions by Penguin English Library (the old one) that I found the other day for 5€! I couldn't just leave them there! Swipe to see the beautiful package cover 😊

Books that I received as hereditary from my grandfather.

In India, we call it 'viraasat'. Everyone says, I have got this bibliophilism from him only.

The books here are:
🍃Mother by M. Gorky
🍃Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy
🍃Coleridge and The Ancient Mariner by S.T. Coleridge
