Reader's note

The novel is set in an impoverished rural England during the Long Depression of the 1870s. Tess is the oldest child of John and Joan Durbeyfield who are uneducated peasants. However, John is given the impression by Parson Tringham that he may have noble blood, as "Durbeyfield" is a corruption of "d'Urberville", the surname of an extinct noble Norman family. John sends his daughter, naive Tess Durbeyfield, to make an appeal to a nearby wealthy family who bear the ancestral name d'Urberville. Add a touch of sophistication to your bookshelf with this vintage edition of Tess of the D'urbervilles by Thomas Hardy.
