In Far From the Madding Crowd, Hardy used the term 'Wessex' for the first time to signify his geographical territory, thus establishing his preferred subject matter: country people in a rural landscape living “between custom and education, between work and ideas, between love of place and experience of change”. We explore this theme further in Tess of the d'Urbervilles.
