Rachel Redford
The Oldie, April 2014

Clym Yeobright is the returning native, but the story’s real protagonist is Egdon Heath, against which mere mortals live out their lives, blighted by desires and disappointments: Thomasin loving duplicitous Wildeve; sensual Eustacia marrying intellectual Clym, imagining him to be her passport to Paris. All is observed by Venn who, along with the red-ochre pigment he peddles, is part of enduring nature. The narration captures Hardy’s melancholy whilst creating a good pace as the drama unfolds. © 2014 The Oldie
