Introduction and Notes by Michael Irwin, Professor of English Literature, University of Kent at CanterburySet in Hardy’s Wessex, Tess is a novel of hypocrisy and double languageHis contestation subtitle, A Pure Woman, angry critics when the book was first published in 1891, and it was condemned as immoral and pessimisticHe tells us about Tess Durbeyfield, the daughter of a poor and dissipated villager, who learns that she may have a descendant of the old d’Urbeville family.In his search for the respectability of his fortune fluctuate greatly, and history assumes that the proportions of a Greek tragedyHe explores Tess’ relationships with the two men, her struggle against the mores of the rural population of the Victorian world where she lives and the hypocrisy of age.In addressing the double standards of the time, Hardy’s masterly evocation of a world we have lost, offers one of the greatest stories in the canon of English literature, whose appeal today defies the judgment of Hardy’s contemporary critics
