Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Updated ed. 194 x 128 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. A heartaching portrayal of a woman faced by an impossible choice in the pursuit of happiness, Thomas Hardy s Tess of the D Urbervilles is edited with notes by Tim Dolin and an introduction by Margaret R. Higonnet in Penguin Classics . When Tess Durbeyfield is driven by family poverty to claim kinship with the wealthy D Urbervilles and seek a portion of their family fortune, meeting her cousin Alec proves to be her downfall. A very different man, Angel Clare, seems to offer her love and salvation, but Tess must choose whether to reveal her past or remain silent in the hope of a peaceful future. With its sensitive depiction of the wronged Tess and powerful criticism of social convention, Tess of the D Urbervilles , subtitled A Pure Woman , is one of the most moving and poetic of Hardy s novels. Based on the three-volume first edition that shocked readers when first published in 1891, this edition includes as appendices: Hardy s Prefaces, the Landscapes of Tess , episodes originally censored from the Graphic periodical version and a selection of the Graphic illustrations. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), born Higher Brockhampton, near Dorchester, originally trained as an architect before earning his living as a writer. Though he saw himself primarily as a poet, Hardy was the author of some of the late eighteenth century s major novels: The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the D Urbervilles (1891), Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), and Jude the Obscure (1895). Amidst the controversy caused by Jude the Obscure , he turned to the poetry he had been writing all his life. In the next thirty years he published over nine hundred poems and his epic drama in verse, The Dynasts . If you enjoyed Tess of the D Urbervilles , you might like Daniel Defoe s Moll Flanders , also available in Penguin Classics . The greatest tragic writer among the English novelists . (Virginia Woolf). Bookseller Inventory # APG9780141439594
