'In Tess, victimized by lust, poverty, and hypocrisy, Thomas Hardy created no standard Victorian heroine, but a woman whose intense vitality flares unforgettably against the bleak background of a dying rural society. Shaped by an acute sense of social injustice and by a vision of human fate cosmic in scope, her story is a singular blending of harsh realism and indelibly poignant beauty. The novel shocked its Victorian audience with its honesty; it remains a triumph of literary art and a timeless commentary on the human condition.'

Such a convoluted tale, and all for nought.

Arrived safely today. Thanks, cat207. I hope the house moving isn't too traumatic. Thinking of you.

I think I read this at University, but that was quite a long time ago, so I'm happy to read it again!
