Description


One of Thomas Hardy's most famous novels is the story of an innocent young woman victimized by the double standards of her day.
Set in the magical Wessex landscape so familiar from Hardy's early work, "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" is unique among his great novels for the intense feeling that he lavished upon his heroine, Tess, a pure woman betrayed by love. Hardy poured all of his profound empathy for both humanity and the rhythms of natural life into this story of her beauty, goodness, and tragic fate. In so doing, he created a character who, like Emma Bovary and Anna Karenina, has achieved classic stature.
