Description
In Thomas Hardy's 1891 novel, etched against the background of a dying rural society, John Durbeyfield is told he is descended from the ancient d'Urberville family. He sends his beautiful and sensitive daughter Tess to meet their supposed relations, but she is seduced and then abandoned by the predatory Alec d'Urberville. Tess hopes for real happiness when she marries Angel Clare, a clergyman's son, but her past continues to haunt her. Originally subtitled "A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented," Hardy's tragedy underscores the destructiveness of hypocritical Victorian mores. Like the other titles in this series of affordable classics, this book has been reset in fresh type and includes a frontispiece illustration.
