    there will probably be spoilers here i will possibly rant if you don t know what happens in tess, it is better not to read this review, although, frankly, to my way of thinking, hardy has so many superior novels, stories, poems, that you would be better served just avoiding this one and going on to one of the great ones like jude or mayor of casterbridge instead but there is something sneaking up in me a bubblingly vague feeling of well wishing for poor doomed tess, that makes me think i mi there will probably be spoilers here i will possibly rant if you don t know what happens in tess, it is better not to read this review, although, frankly, to my way of thinking, hardy has so many superior novels, stories, poems, that you would be better served just avoiding this one and going on to one of the great ones like jude or mayor of casterbridge instead but there is...

    I hated this passionately, which is perhaps unfair, as the book is really quite admirable for tackling the subject of double standards applied to male and female sexual behaviour But this is one of the most depressing, pointless novels I ve ever read in my life I h...

    I need to start by venting all the despair I felt reading Thomas Hardy s Tess of the D Ubervilles This tale is certainly not Pride or Prejudice or even Jane Eyre where the heroines have the prospect or the hope of happiness What could a woman of Tess s time and situation hope for Contentment But not even that was in store for our poor heroine Tess sweet, loving nature is invariably abused by men, specifically the two central male characters of Alec D Urberville and Angel Clare The road tha I need to start by venting all the despair I felt reading Thomas Hardy s Tess of the D Ubervilles This tale is certainly not Pride or Prejudice or even Jane Eyre where the heroines have the prospect or the hope of happiness What could a woman of Tess s time and situation hope for Contentment But not even that was in store for our poor heroine Tess sweet, loving nature is invariably abused by men, specifically the two central male characters of Alec D Urberville and Angel Clare The road that these two men lead her down becomes increasingl...
