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 become Thomas Hardy's most popular novel, 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”

This was the first Hardy I read, and I've been smitten ever since. The beautiful way it is written, combined with the landscape of Hardy's Wessex makes for a feast of imagery.
A truly unfortunate tragedy... More

“Tess of the D'Urbervilles”

I love Tess because she is a real woman with complex emotions. Hardy has created a believable novel because none of the characters are black and white, Alec is not all bad, Angel is not a saint and Tess is not wholly... More

“A pure woman”

In a world where women are flogged in some countries for being raped, Hardy's novel is still shockingly relevant. Tess Durbeyfield goes to work for a rich family to whom her parents believe they are distantly... More
