Hardy, T. (n.d.). The Return of the Native. Retrieved from http://www.worldebookfair.org/


Description
Preface: The date at which the following events are assumed to have occurred may be set down as between 1840 and 1850, when the old watering place herein called ?Budmouth? still retained sufficient afterglow from its Georgian gaiety and prestige to lend it an absorbing attractiveness to the romantic and imaginative soul of a lonely dweller inland. Under the general name of ?Egdon Heath,? which has been given to the sombre scene of the story, are united or typified heaths of various real names, to the number of at least a dozen; these being virtually one in character and aspect, though their original unity, or partial unity, is now somewhat disguised by intrusive strips and slices brought under the plough with varying degrees of success, or planted to woodland. It is pleasant to dream that some spot in the extensive tract whose southwestern quarter is here described, may be the heath of that traditionary King of Wessex?Lear.
