IN THIS ESSEY I WILL EXAMINE BASHEBIA EVERDENE AND HER 3 SUITERS
Thomas Hardy born 1840 and died 1928 and he lived through the industrial revolution; he lived a poor child hood, as his father was a stonemason his whole life was centred around the countryside, as were his novels. Hardy started his carrier not doing novels but doing poems.

Gabriel Oak - The novel's hero, Gabriel Oak is a farmer, shepherd, and bailiff, marked by his humble and honest ways, his exceptional skill with animals and farming, and an unparalleled loyalty. He is Bathsheba's first suitor, later the bailiff on her farm, and finally her husband at the very end of the novel.
