Set in Egdon Heath, a wild tract of country in the south-west of England, this is
a masterpiece of dramatic tension. Clym Yeobright, a diamond merchant in Paris, returns to
his home in Egdon where he falls passionately in love with the sensuous, free-spirited Eustacia
Vye. She, while in a brief state of infatuation, marries him, hoping he will take her away to the
more exciting life in Paris. But Eustacia's dreams of escape are not to be realized. Clym
Yeobright, the returning native, can not bring her salvation.

In The Returrn of the Native there is a strong conflict between nature or fate, represented by
Egdon Heath, and human nature, represented by Hardy's true-to-life characters. This is a novel which
perfectly epitomizes Thomas Hardy's unique and melancholy genius.
