Tess of the D'Urbervilles
Thomas Hardy
Adult Fiction HARDY

Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: Set in the magical Wessex landscape so familiar from Thomas 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. (Book Jacket Status: Not Jacketed)
