The French Lieutenant’s Woman (1969), by John Fowles
is a period novel inspired by the 1823 novel Ourika, by Claire de Duras, which Fowles translated into English in 1977 (and revised in 1994). Fowles was a great aficionado of Thomas Hardy, and, in particular, likened his heroine, Sarah Woodruff, to Tess of the d'Urbervilles, the protagonist of Hardy’s popular novel of the same name (1891).
In 1981, director Karel Reisz and writer Harold Pinter adapted the novel as a film, starring Meryl Streep. During 2006, it was adapted for the stage, by Mark Healy, in a version which toured the UK that year. In 2005, the novel was chosen by TIME magazine as one of the one hundred best English-language novels from 1923 to present.
There are plentiful walks from Oathill along foot paths and a network of country lanes over bridges and rivers to local beauty spots, Ford Abby House and Gardens, Pilsdon Pen, and Wayford Woods, ideal for walking well behaved dogs.
