5.0 out of 5 stars "A rural painting of the Dutch School", 26 Aug 2000
This review is from: Under the Greenwood Tree (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
This is an excellent book. The book has two main themes: Firstly - The Mellstock Quire This is battle between the tradional life of rural anglican England and the Industrial revolution. As a result of the revolution many new ideas have been constructed. As the new vicar (Mr Maybold) comes to the parish of Mellstock he introduces a new instrument the organ. The tales of the quire are witty and the fashion in which they approach the vicar.
Secondly - Fancy Day Fancy Day is the new organist at the Church many man fall in love with her. This sectioj of the book gives an insight into the courting arragment of rural England in Hardy's time. The tales are interesting and truly witty.
There is an excellent set of notes accompaing the book which are very useful for coursework at GCSE or A-level (AS Level). The book also includes a brief section on the Life of Thomas Hardy - this is indeed a very interesting.
