Publisher's Summary

Tess of the d'Urbervilles: A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented was Thomas Hardy's penultimate novel.

First published in 1891 and now considered a great classic of English literature, the book received mixed reviews when it first appeared, in part because it challenged the sexual mores of Hardy's day.

Thomas Hardy (1840 - 1928) was an English novelist and poet of the naturalist movement.

    "Great Deal"

    I can't even drive to Barnes and Noble and buy the book for this amount. The narrator does a good job and has a pleasant voice. The story was dismal, but of course, a classic and well-written. I needed to help my dyslexic son with an advanced placement class in high school by discussing it with him. We've both listened/are listening to it. This was a big help, although truth be told, I'd have never listened to this on my own.

    "excellence of hardys narrative"

    Understanding of human relationships exemplified by hardys focus on emotion as the basis for successful relationships, the folly of lust and downfall of its perpitraitors.
