Henchard's will, despite his great business success, speaks to his dissatisfaction with life. He does not want to be mourned or even remembered for being on this earth. He wants to be buried in an unmarked grave.

& that nobody is wished to see my dead body. & that no murners walk behind me at my funeral. & that no flours be planted on my grave. & that no man remember me. ch 45
