Marius van Blerck The book had no description of any person "earnestly" climbing a haystack to flee a bull. There is reference to Henchard, who approached Lucetta, after securing the bull, not having perceived Elizabeth, "who had climbed on to the clover-heap". No reference to "earnestly". Maybe you have an unauthorised "pirated" copy of the book?

Drew Graham Doesn't care about what happens to his characters?? Au contraire! It's always quite obvious that Thomas Hardy cares about his poor casts of characters. And whether or not the word was actually used, I can imagine someone earnestly running from a bull quite easily.

I'm so sorry you missed the beauty of this wonderful book.
