With an Introduction and Notes by Michael Irwin, Professor of English Literature, University of Kent at Canterbury. None of the great Victorian novels is more vivid and readable than The Mayor of Casterbridge. Set in the heart of Hardy’s Wessex, the ‘partly real, partly dream country’ he founded on his native Dorset, it charts the rise and self-induced downfall of a single ‘man of character’. The fast-moving and ingeniously contrived narrative is Shakespearian in its tragic force, and features some of the author’s most striking episodes and brilliant passages of description.

They learn that Henchard is now the mayor of Casterbridge. The story centers on Michael Henchard, Mayor of Casterbridge. Henchard has a dark and shameful secret which occurs nearly 20 years before when he is then just a poor hay trusser.

Hardy was a determinist who believed that external forces affected human lives deeply. Determinists hold that everything is caused. The poor, old woman directs Susan to Casterbridge.
