Loin de la foule déchaînée

République des Lettres

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Thomas Hardy. "Loin de la foule déchaînée" commence la série de romans les plus typiques de Thomas Hardy, à laquelle appartiennent entre autres "Tess d'Urberville" et "Jude l'obscur". Dans la campagne anglaise de l'époque victorienne, une jeune femme belle et libre, Bathsheba Everdene, féministe avant l'heure, doit diriger la ferme léguée par son oncle. Dans un monde rural hostile, mais inspiré par les magnifiques paysages de la province du Wessex où l'auteur est né, Bathsheba est courtisée par trois hommes: le berger Gabriel Oake qui deviendra son valet de ferme après avoir perdu son troupeau, un riche voisin William Boldwood à qui elle fera miroiter un engagement, et le beau Sergent Francis Troy. Plaçant l'amour et son indépendance au-dessus de la sécurité, de la richesse et des conventions patriarcales de l'époque, Bathsheba refuse d'abord tous les prétendants avant de finir par épouser Troy. Celui-ci se révèle être un mari totalement immoral et sans scrupules qui la trompe et dilapide sa fortune. Opposant une femme romantique éprise de liberté au carcan de la société victorienne, ce quatrième roman de Thomas Hardy, l'un des plus spécifiques de la littérature anglaise et son premier grand succès public, annonce déjà la veine pessimiste qui traversera toute son oeuvre. Il passionnera tous ceux qui s'interrogent sur l'amour et la condition de la femme.

About the author

Poète et romancier anglais, fils d'un tailleur de pierre, Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) est représentatif du courant naturaliste dans le roman britannique. Une grande partie de sa production romanesque, qui se déroule dans la région fictive du Wessex (sud-ouest de l'Angleterre), met en scène des personnages en lutte avec leurs propres pulsions, dans un climat de tragédie rurale, d'hypocrisie sociale et d'humour cruel. Boudé par son époque, jugé trop pessimiste, dégouté par la critique, l'auteur de Loin de la foule déchaînée (1874), du Maire de Casterbridge (1886), de Tess d'Urberville (1891) et de Jude l'obscur (1895) n'obtiendra la consécration qu'après sa mort.
