Review:

"Thomas Hardy's thrilling story of seduction, murder, cruelty and betrayal" ( The Times)

"Like the greatest characters in literature, Tess lives beyond the final pages of the book as a permanent citizen of the imagination... Tess is that rare creature in literature: goodness made interesting" (Irving Howe)

"Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles has a lush sensuality about the heat of summer and the heat of lust which makes the gorgeousness of Hardy's heroine and his country of Wessex both seems utterly desirable as the tale of tragic fate unfolds" ( The Times)

"Hardy never used his "country" and his Greek ambitions to better effect" (Melvyn Bragg)

"Tess's beauty and the effect that it has on others gave me a sense of the destructive power of sex" (Rufus Wainwright)

From the Publisher:

The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as to read.

Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.
