Now I turn my finances.

Small, but it's a start.

Are you in debt?


Good luck, Oak.


George! George!

He says he has given sufficient


and will not pay anything more.

It's a damn insolent.

Who does he think he is?

Is the niece of the pattern.

Is an outsider.

Then tell the niece of

pattern that would be better

to lift up his rear

my car

and give me two pennies more

or will not happen.

Tell him not to pay him more.

Vigilante ...


Let it happen.

Ei, agora deixa-as, rapacious.

Leave it, boy!

George, come here!

Come when you call!


That's right. Come here.

You have much to learn, right?

Much to learn.

I wish we were rich enough to

pay a man to do it.

Well, we are not, and you'll

if you want to help

stay here.

Eh! Upload! Vamos!

I found this hat.

It's mine.

I saw her.


In the forest, under the hill.

- "I was watching?

- Yes, well ... no.

I mean ... yes.

But not deliberately.

Squire Oak! Squire Oak!

Squire Oak, wake up.

It left the windows closed.

Could have died.

I think that saved my life


I do not know his name.

Prefer not to say.

I never liked how it sounds.

Could ... find another.

Oh, sorry.


Excuse me.

You can take it, if you want.

I guess I was thinking

you would like to kiss her.

No, but I will.

No, I will!

Find out my name, if you can!

My name is Gabriel!

I brought a lamb

for Ms. Everdene.

I thought you might like

Can be

but one is visiting here.

Coming soon.

The lamb ... is not the only

why I came.

QUESTIONS wanted Miss Ev ...

Bathsheba ...

Because if he would, would

happy to marry her.

Is there any other young

the aims?

Squire Oak, has so many!

It is very nice!

And smart.

Not many young people come here

but there must be a dozen.

Too bad.

Well, that's why I came.

Thanks. Good morning, Mrs. Hurst.

Eh, eh, squire Oak!

My aunt was lying.

I have no suitor.

I've never had.

Glad to hear that.

I have my own farm.

With 200 sheep.

Will be 400 when bred.

Yet all is not paid,

but ...

I will work twice as

we are married.

But I never said that I

marry you.

"He ran up here to tell me

not going to marry me?

If you would like to marry you,

would not have come to fetch him.

No, just wanted you to know

I'm not anyone's girlfriend.

I hate feeling property

a man that way.

There's nothing wrong with going

behind someone

to correct an error.

No. There is nothing wrong.

Well, I'm not sure.


I have not had time

think about whether I want to marry

with you or not

you already went down the hill.

Think, Bathsheba.

Will you marry me?

I love her more than I can express.

Try to think about it ...

If I can think of outdoors.

Will have a piano in

one or two years

when finished

to pay the sheep.

And I will practice with the flute,

to play with you at night.

That I like!

And we could announce

Wedding in the newspaper.

Boy, I wish!

And the births,

Each of them!

Do not talk like that!

And at home, by the fire,

Wherever you look,

I'll be there.

And everywhere I look ...

You will be there

Is useless.

I will not marry you.

I can not.

Why not?

Why not love him.

Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, especially William Wordsworth. He was highly critical of much in Victorian society, especially on the declining status of rural people in Britain, such as those from his native South West England. While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, therefore, he gained fame as the author of such novels as Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). During his lifetime, Hardy's poetry was acclaimed by younger poets (particularly the Georgians) who viewed him as a mentor. After his death his poems were lauded by Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden and Philip Larkin.Many of his novels concern tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances, and they are often set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex; initially based on the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom, Hardy's Wessex eventually came to include the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Hampshire and much of Berkshire, in southwest and south central England. Two of his novels, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Far from the Madding Crowd, were listed in the top 50 on the BBC's survey The Big Read. more…
