CONFLICT

Protagonist: Gabriel Oak, a devoted lover of Bathsheba, he waits patiently through the years for the approval of Bathsheba.

Antagonists: The antagonist is winning the love of Bathsheba. The first obstacle is Bathsheba's pride and vanity, which makes her reject Gabriel in the belief that he is not good enough for her. The second obstacle is Sergeant Troy, who hides his love affair with Fanny Robin and marries Bathsheba. The third obstacle is Farmer Boldwood who has an uncontrollable obsession for Bathsheba and plans to marry her if Troy does not reappear.

Climax: In chapter fifty-two, the climax occurs when Troy makes his reappearance at the party hosted by farmer Boldwood after he has been thought dead. Boldwood, driven to insanity by his obsession for Bathsheba, kills Troy. This frees the path for Gabriel to marry a much-matured Bathsheba, who now recognizes his genuine worth and goodness.


Outcome: The story ends in a comedy for Gabriel, for he finally marries Bathsheba. Unfortunately, it is Troy's death at the hands of Boldwood that clears the way for Gabriel to realize his dream.
