Autobiographical element of Thomas hardy in far from the madding crowd


Dr. Babita Tyagi

Far from the madding crowd is among the early masterpieces of Thomas Hardy. His writing has used many elements from his lifetime. The novelist reflected his life in story, plot constructions, events in novel. He made uses of places and landscapes as a background of numerous minor characters from the Wessex peasantry. These humble characters are almost invariable treated in the light and playful manner and they constitute comic relief in what are generally sombre stories. It is the soil of Wessex which furnishes customs and beliefs used by Hardy in his novels. This paper elaborate the varied elements of Hardy’s life reflected and we see that the use of Wessex makes Far from the Madding Crowd explicitly autobiographical.
