Hardy's masterpiece features a heroine at odds with the world and a traditional rural way of life facing the onset of modernity. Attacked by public prosecutors for obscenity upon its publication in 1856, Flaubert's debut novel went on to become a bestseller. A tale of stifling provincial life and bourgeois adultery, it established psychological realism at the core of narrative fiction and is usually listed among the finest novels of all time.
