Keywords:Mayor of Casterbridge, Lives, Fate, Naturalism, Linguistic critique
This research linguistically explores the naturalistic elements in Thomas Hardy's book "The Mayor of Casterbridge" i.e., Immanent will, fate, the Law of Nature, and Naturalism as a whole are the main naturalist tenets that are considered. This research investigates how various forces, such as immanent will, fate, and natural laws, interact to determine and frame a person's actions and life. This study looks into the impact of coincidence and chance in our lives. A man is not solely accountable for his actions which lead to his miserable destiny, and it is also explored that free will is not entirely free. According to this research work, nature significantly impacts how our lives are affected. Regardless of our decisions and desires, our lives are directed and governed by an absolute force known as Immanent Will. According to the research, because natural law controls every aspect of human life, all people are subject to it.
