Thomas Hardy's exploration of his most tragic hero, Michael Henchard, is the classic tale of overambition. From his drunken sale of his wife and baby at a country fair, to his subjugation of a farming village, Henchard's life is an epic attempt to bring the world to heel as he hides even from himself all vestiges of emotional vulnerability.
