Because of the harsh treatment the heroine of Tess of the D'Urbervilles received, Thomas Hardy stopped writing novels altogether. However, Hardy's masterful presentation of a strong woman destroyed by intolerant Nature is now considered one of his most grimly compelling satires of circumstance.
The title, Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D'Urbervilles, part of Chelsea House Publishers’ Modern Critical Interpretations series, presents the most important 20th-century criticism on Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D'Urbervilles through extracts of critical essays by well-known literary critics. This collection of criticism also features a short biography on Thomas Hardy, a chronology of the author’s life, and an introductory essay written by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University.
