Thomas Hardy - Tess De Urberville
Thomas Hardy :One of the greatest representative of the late Victorian literature, Thomas Hardy, was among the novelists who marked the transition to XXth century English and American fiction. He wrote many novels such as: "Far from the Madding Crowd", "Jude the Obscure", The Mayor of Casterbridge", etc.
"Considered one of the major classic novels of nineteenth-century literature, Tess is the compelling story of an extraordinary woman and her tragic destiny -- a brilliant, transcendent work of compassion and courage by one of the finest English novelists, Thomas Hardy." (Mass Market Paperback edition).
Novel by Thomas Hardy, first published serially in July-December 1891 and in its entirety in book form (three volumes) the same year. It was subtitled A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented because Hardy felt that its heroine was a virtuous victim of a rigid Victorian moral code. "At the time of its publication in 1891, Tess of the d'Urbervilles was scorned by readers for what was then considered its indictment of
Victorian society and its unconventional heroine, Tess Durbeyfield.
Tess of the D'Urbervilles" is regarded as Hardy's tragic masterpiece. It is the story of innocence, of Man and Nature, of history and its relation to the present, concentrated on the fate of a simple young girl.
Like the greatest characters in literature, Tess lives beyond the final pages of the book as a permanent citizen of the imagination, said Irving Howe. 'In Tess he stakes everything on his sensuous apprehension of a young woman's life, a girl who is at once a simple milkmaid and an archetype of feminine strength.
Tess is that rare creature in literature: goodness made interesting. The novel is powerful and depressing. Tess is a weak-willed woman. Angel is a provincial, moralistic, and unforgiving husband and Alec is just plain mean, he is the embodiment of evil. The mood is somber, and the few happy things that happen are overshadowed by the unhappy things that they foreshadow.
