Focusing on the novel "The Return of the Native" by Thomas Hardy, this paper provides a comparative analysis of three characters - Eustacia Vye, Thomasin Yeobright, and Mrs Yeobright - who serve pivotal roles both in the development of the narrative and in the communication of Hardy's main themes and messages. The paper compares and contrasts these characters and their unique traits, relationships with their settings, and the influence fate has in their respective stories. The paper also notes that Hardy infused this work with many influences of Greek classical literature and drama. In conclusion, the paper surmises that the contrasting natures, attitudes, and interactions of the three main female characters aid Hardy in his narrative development and in the communication of his themes and messages.
From the Paper:"Her social class is not clearly defined, but she clearly longs for a grander living than she can ever hope of in Egdon, as is demonstrated by her hopes of being whisked away to Paris by Clym. She longs for an escape, and therefore clearly has aspirations towards a higher class of society."
