What are these shadows,
That as if, burn me with
Gazes as cold and grey
As graveyards at midnight
That, in all their eerie quiet
Accuse me with chapped lips
And make the time stare
As an indifferent passerby
While I try to slay demons
I once left long ago behind

What are these shadows that pass me by,
Every time I close my eyes...

Carey Mulligan as Bathsheba Everdene

Thomas Hardy’s ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ is one of my favorite fiction works. The protagonist, Miss Bathsheba Everdene is a proud and independent woman who comes across as inspiring as well. This is also an important feminist character in English literature. 

This portrait is of British actress Carey Mulligan who played Bathsheba’s character in the movie based on this novel (by the same name).
