Considered a great classic of English literature and Thomas Hardy's best novel by many, it is the story of Tess Durbeyfield, whose father is led to believe is descended for the ancient Norman D'Urberville family. Described by Hardy as "a pure woman," Tess finds herself caught between two men: Alec Stoke-D'Urberville, a libertine whose father had purchased the baronial title, not inherited it, and Angel Clare, the son of a minister and the man she marries. Each man finds himself obsessed with Tess, and even after they separately leave her they find themselves drawn back to her, creating a conflict that only tragedy can resolve.
