Details for The Originals Tess of The D'Urbervilles

"This hobble of being alive is rather serious, don’t you think so? Thomas Hardy’s magnum opus, Tess of the d’Urbervilles first appeared in book form in 1891. It initially received mixed reviews and was censored due to the challenges that it presented to the sexual morals of Victorian society. However, through the subtitle of the novel, A PureWoman Faithfully Presented, Hardy sympathises with the working class woman who becomes a hapless victim of the rigid Victorian society. Tess of the d’Urbervilles was later considered one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century. Through Tess Durbeyfield, Hardy skilfully shows the social injustices that are deeply rooted in gender. A moving tale of loss, unrequited love and condemnation, the novel has one of the most tragic endings of all time. Adapted to film, theatre and television several times over, the novel is a timeless classic."

About Thomas Hardy

Born on 2 June 1840, THOMAS HARDY was an English novelist, poet and dramatist from Higher Bockhampton, Dorset, England. He was known for his genial nature and the ability to sensitively portray human sufferings and injustices in his works. Some of his major novels are Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886) and Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891).
Hardy was known for his regionalised plots that represented a rural way of life which was fast declining. He often challenged Victorian morality and was often sympathetic to the working classes in his novels. Today, he holds the unique distinction of being a renowned nineteenth century novelist and a twentieth century poet.
