Title: Tess of the d'Urbervilles
Description: New York/London, Norton & Company, 1991. Third edition. An authoritative text; Backgrounds and Sources; Criticism (press reviews). Pb, in-8, xiv + 492 pp. Cover illustration: Mädchenporträt by Franz von Defregger, reproduced from Defregger, 1835-1921 (Rosenheim, West Germany: Rosenheimer Verlagshaus, 1983). With chronology of events in Hardy's life and historical and literary events, bibliography, Hardy's map of Wessex. The text is that of the Clarendon edition (1983). Note LT: Tess was first translated in Dutch in 1895, but this translation seems to have disappeared from the market. Theme: The novel is pessimistic: the poor always lose, honnesty doesn't pay. In this respect history repeats itself as men does not change fundamentally. Detail: One of the characters (Angel) reads 'Das Kapital' of Marx but he stays shortsighted. Good
