Tess of the D’urbervilles – Thomas Hardy

Opis towaru

Tess of the d’Urbervilles is one of Thomas Hardy’s most famous novels, and one of the best-loved books of the nineteenth century. After an accident, Tess Durbeyfield, the daughter of impoverished peasants, decides to call on the aristocratic d’Urbervilles, as she believes that she is also descended from their ancient Norman lineage and that they can rescue her family from indigence. Unfortunately she is taken under the wing of the immoral libertine scion Alec d’Urberville, who seduces and scorns her. While she attempts to rebuild her life, she falls in love with the virtuous farmer Angel Clare and must find a way to defeat the demons of her past. Controversial when it was first published for challenging Victorian morals, Tess of the d’Urbervilles has now found a place on most shelves, catching the imaginations of generations of readers with its high drama, endearing heroine and powerful evocations of the southern English countryside.

Tess of the D’Urbervilles – Thomas Hardy

Opis towaru

HarperCollins is pround to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‚My life looks as if it had been wasted for want of chances! When I see what you know, what you have read, and seen, and thought, I feel what a nothing I am!’

Challenging the hypocrisy and social conventions of the rural Victorian world, Tess of the D’Urbervilles follows the story of Tess Durbeyfield as she attempts to escape the poverty of her background, seeking wealth by claiming connection with the aristocratic D’Urberville family. It is through Tess’s relationships with two very different men that Hardy tells the story of his tragic heroine, and exposes the double standards of the world that she inhabits with searing pathos and heart-rending sentiment.
