Synopsis

This delightful portrayal of a picturesque rural society established Hardy as a writer. However, the double-plot, in which the love story of Dick Dewey and Fancy Day is inter-related with a tragic chapter in the history of Mellstock Choir, hints at the poignant disappearance of a long-lived and highly-valued traditional way of life.
