Отрывок из книги «Oper 5 The Mayor of Casterbridge»
It was a late summer evening at the beginning of the nineteenth century. A young man and a woman were approaching the large village of Weydon-Priors in Upper Wessex. They were on foot and the woman was carrying a child.

The man had a fine, strong figure and his face was stern and dark. His clothes were made of cotton cord material, the sort that farm workers wear, and his head was covered with a straw hat. He carried a basket on his back. Out of the top of the basket could be seen some hay-cutting tools. His steady, measured walk showed that he was a skilled countryman. What was strange about this couple was the silence between them. The man was reading, or pretending to read, a song printed on a sheet of paper. The woman, clearly his wife, behaved as if she were alone except for the child she carried. The only sound was an occasional whisper of the woman to the child, and the tiny girl’s reply.

The young woman’s face was not beautiful, although the way she looked down sideways to the little girl made her quite pretty. But as she walked slowly on, silently thinking, she had only the hard, dull expression of hopelessness on her face. She stared straight ahead most of the time, and showed little interest in what she saw.

For a long time there was no sound at all, except the voice of a bird singing an old evening song. Then, as they came closer to the village, a lot of different shouts and noises began to reach their ears. When the first houses of Weydon-Priors could finally be seen, the family group met a farm labourer coming towards them. The husband looked up from his song-sheet.
