About the Book

Thomas Hardy wrote a book titled Tess of the d'Urbervilles: A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented. The British illustrated journal The Graphic first published it in a censored and serialized form in 1891. It was later released in book form in three volumes in 1891 and as a single volume in 1892. Tess of the d'Urbervilles earned unfavorable reviews when it originally came out, in part because it questioned the sexual standards of late Victorian England, despite the fact that it is now regarded as a significant 19th-century English novel and Hardy's masterpiece. Tess was shown as a champion of both her own and other people's rights. The book is set in Thomas Hardy's imagined Wessex, a rural area of impoverished England. The novel is summarized as Tess Durbeyfield and is the story of a 16-year-old girl who discovers her father is descended from an ancient Norman family. She drives to market in her father's place, but falls asleep at the reins; the wagon crashes, and the family's only horse is killed. Tess gives birth to a frail son the next summer. When Tess is unable to find a person willing to christen a kid born outside of marriage.
