The Woodlanders characters ↠ 107 Local timber merchant and chief man of business in the area Giles has deep unspoken feelings for Mr Melbury's daughter Grace who has been away at boarding school and now returns to Little Hintock an educated young woman with modern ideas Giles belongs to a past she no longer wants to be a part of and she is soon attracted to the new handsome yo. Update May 7 2011 I took Hardy s The Woodlanders with me on a recent week long camping trip to Yosemite National Park and re read it while there It was truly wonderful to sit in some of the most idyllic natural locations in all of the world and read this most amazing novel If anything I got even from the novel this second time through and highly recommend The Woodlanders to fans of the fiction and poetry of Thomas HardyI am continuing on with my summer of reading the written works of George Eliot and Thomas Hardy I just finished reading Thomas Hardy s beautiful novel The Woodlanders last night I have been reading Hardy s novels in the order in which he wrote them and The Woodlanders first published in 1887 follows closely on the heels of The Mayor of Casterbridge 1886 In all honesty I very much enjoyed this novel much much than the relentlessly tragic tale told in The Mayor of CasterbridgeHardy has an amazing knack for thoroughly placing his reader into the environment of his novel Interesting to me too is that each of Hardy s novels tends to focus on a different environment and ecology found within the fictional Wessex region of southwestern England For example in A Pair of Blue Eyes the reader becomes fully immersed in the beauty of the vales forests and sea cliffs along the Cornwall coastline in The Return of the Native Hardy brings vividly to life the peoples and environment of the Egdon Heath and in Far From the Madding Crowd we are treated to the rolling hills and pastoral landscape of small rural English farms and pastures used by the sheep herders and their flocks and finally The Mayor of Casterbridge largely takes place in the urban environment of his fictional town CasterbridgeIn The Woodlanders the reader is introduced to the shaded and leafy world of the forest of Blackmoor Vale and the hamlet of Little Hintock The novel s characters live in the midst of this forested world and make a living with and among the trees They are involved in lumbering forestry and management of orchards It is a beautiful environment and lovingly described and re described by Hardy as the course of the novel moves through the seasons of the yearI love how Hardy integrates the mood of his environment into the plot of the novel The sounds sights and smells of the forest and bridle paths are as much a part of The Woodlanders as are the dialog thoughts and actions of the characters themselves In fact I have come to realize that Hardy intentionally develops the environment in each of his novels to become a fully empowered character in the same sense as his human players Also this novel seems to have been one of Hardy s favorites as it was based upon the area where his mother had grown up a location that he was apparently uite fond ofThe novel revolves around Grace Melbury a young woman who returns to her father s and stepmother s home in Little Hintock after some years away becoming educated and socially refined Unlike Clym Yeobright in The Return of the Native Grace is not uite sure that she really wants to remain in the forest of Little Hintock surrounded by the peasant class of her childhood Her father sent her off to school and has always encouraged her to aspire to a grander lifestyle She returns to find the young man that still loves her Giles Winterborne is still there and working for her father s timber business and operating a traveling apple cider press during the harvest season At first blush it would seem that all looks well for the future of Grace and GilesAs is typical in a Hardy novel Fate and Irony have a curious way of inserting themselves generally uite tragically into the lives of the plot s characters uickly the reader is also introduced to the novel s other players the steadfast and loyal young peasant woman Marty South the newly arrived gentlemanly young doctor Edred Fitzpiers and the local landowner the widowed Mrs Felice Charmond While Giles and Marty are relatively contented and happy folk of the forest Dr Fitzpiers and Mrs Charmond are clearly out of their element in the Blackmoor Vale and Grace Melbury is betwixt and between as she endeavors to determine the course of her futureI really do not want to give anything of the plot away at all but suffice it to say that the novel is uite seductive in that while the reader becomes completely enthralled with the pastoral scenes and life in the forest around Little Hintock there is at the same time an incredibly epic and pathos driven tragic drama that is unfolding and spiraling out of control that is of almost Shakespearean proportions It really is vintage Hardy I honestly couldn t put the book down for several daysI loved the characters of Giles Winterborne and Marty South These are two people who are completely in touch with the natural world around them in Blackmoor Vale Hardy describes a scene deep in the forest with Marty helping Giles plant new seedling trees to replace those harvested by the forestersWinterborne s fingers were endowed with a gentle conjurer s touch in spreading the roots of each little tree resulting in a sort of caress under which the delicate fibres all laid themselves out in in their proper directions for growth He put most of these roots towards the south west for he said in forty years time when some great gale is blowing from that uarter the trees will reuire the strongest holdfast on that side to stand against it and not fall How they sigh directly when we put em upright though while they are lying down they don t sigh at all said Marty Do they said Giles I ve never noticed it She erected one of the young pines into its hole and held up her finger the soft musical breathing instantly set in which was not to cease night or day till the grown tree should be felled probably long after the two planters had been felled themselvesNow that s just some great prose I found myself time and again reading a section like this and then re reading it and just reveling in the lilting lyricism of Hardy s sentences and paragraphsA couple of final thoughts As you read the novel periodically refer to the single stanza of poetry written by Hardy that serves as the novel s epigraph and give it some thoughtNot boskiest bow r When hearts are ill affin d Hath tree of pow r To shelter from the windSecondly the reader will encounter the term man trap periodically These were large metal traps that game keepers and land managers used to try and prevent poaching and other illegal activities on the gentry s lands and estates Hardy s use of allusion and metaphor is wonderfulThis was a beautiful novel to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it I highly recommend The Woodlanders It is Thomas Hardy at his best Five out of Five Stars and a Personal Favorite for me When the Monsters Are uiet in the area Giles has deep unspoken feelings for Mr Melbury's daughter Grace who has been away at boarding school and now returns to Little Hintock an educated young woman with

summary The Woodlanders

The Woodlanders characters ↠ 107 Passion and money beauty and ambition these are the opening themes in The Woodlanders a novel revolving around a small village community coming to terms with a radically changing worldPlain Marty South a young country girl mature beyond her years endures her love for Giles Winterbourne in silence He works in partnership with George Melbury the. 4 Like other Hardy novels the relationships in The Woodlanders seem doomed Yet this novel is also laugh out loud funny a melancholy farce There doesn t seem to be much genuine love between the uartet of lovers who experience temporary infatuations and suffer through various missteps Even when things don t end well there isn t enough passion to call it a tragedy The most interesting relationship for me is the fatherdaughter relationship Although often misguided Melbury shows real love and sacrifice for his daughter I enjoyed this novel and especially loved the woodland setting and learning about the daily working life of its residents
