A beautiful blue and gold decorative vintage book by Thomas Hardy, famous for its heroine as for its notoriously tragic plot. The novel traces the difficult life of Tess Durbeyfield, whose victimization at the hands of men eventually leads to her horrific downfall.
“Beauty lay not in the thing, but in what the thing symbolized.”
Tess spares the reader none of the bitterness inherent in English country life, and Hardy’s often romanticized love for the landscape of Wessex is balanced by the novel’s grimly realistic depiction of social injustice. Hardy's writings are always a classy and welcome addition to any bookshelf. A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
