Tess of the D'UrbervillesFörfattare: Thomas Hardy E-bok
A young woman challenges the conventions of her time in this classic novel about nineteenth century English society.
At the time of its publication in 1891, Tess of the d'Urbervilles was scorned by readers for what was then considered its indictment of Victorian society and its unconventional heroine, Tess Durbeyfield. Now considered one of the major classic novels of nineteenth century literature, Tess is the compelling story of an extraordinary woman and her tragic destiny—a brilliant, transcendent work of compassion and courage by one of the finest English novelists, Thomas Hardy.
