Hardy’s thirteenth novel, Tess of the D‘Urbervilles is a melodrama in the hands of a master, replete with both emotion and intelligence, quasi-operatic in its use of the characters’ suffering, but also suffused with Hardy’s longing for disappearing rural England, especially his own Dorset, this fertile and sheltered tract of country, in which the fields are never brown an.

Tess of the d'Urbervilles. About Tess of the d'Urbervilles. Tess returns home, gives birth to a son, Sorrow, the product of the rape, and works as a field worker on nearby farms. Sorrow becomes ill and dies in infancy, leaving Tess devastated at her loss.

The d‘Urbervilles-or Stoke-d’Urbervilles, as they at first called themselves-who owned all this, were a somewhat unusual family to find in such an old-fashioned part of the country. Conning for an hour in the British Museum the pages of works devoted to extinct, half-extinct, obscured, and ruined families appertaining to the quarter of England in which he proposed to settle, he considered that d‘Urberville looked and sounded as well as any of them: and d’Urberville accordingly was annexed to his own name for himself and his heirs eternally.

d‘Urberville’s son had called on horseback, having been riding by chance in the direction of Marlott. He had wished to know, finally, in the name of his mother, if Tess could really come to manage the old lady’s fowl-farm or not; the lad who had hitherto superintended the birds having proved untrustworthy. Rising still, an immense landscape stretched around them on every side; behind, the green valley of her birth, before, a grey country of which she knew nothing except from her first brief visit to Trantridge.

Thomas Hardy was raised in a small, rural village in Dorset. Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure drew such an outcry for their sexual frankness and social criticism that Hardy stopped writing fiction, focusing instead on his poetry.

Thomas Hardy was raised in a small, rural village in Dorset. His father was a stonemason and his mother educated Hardy until age eight.

Malaris
This book is terrible. It shows the way of male dominated society and of malevolent fate in a good way, the problem is the book is far too long; 500 pages of Hardy is too much.
Pryl
First published in 1891, Tess... is a very sad book: a young girl's life is slowly but surely destroyed -not by her enemies, but by the people who say they love her.
Nuadazius
Good lord this is bad! Tess is always sorrowful over something or another, the description makes up at least half the book, and the plot moves along at a snails pace. If you find reading about a girl's sensitive feelings (to the point of wanting to attack her), and reading extreme amounts of things like milking cows, harvesting grain, walking places, sleeping, and being pathetic, then this is the book for you. Otherwise, avoid this book like the plague.
