Review:

"The second edition of Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Sarah E. Maier brings together a wealth of contextual materials, contemporary reviews, extracts from Hardy's notebooks, and nineteenth-century debates about women, inviting the reader to respond to the challenge of the novel's subtitle: 'A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented.' It reprints two separately published stories, 'Saturday Night in Arcady' and 'The Midnight Baptism, ' which Hardy salvaged from the expurgated text published in the Graphic and reinstated in the three-volume edition of 1891. Meticulously annotated and impressively documented, this new edition will be indispensable to students and scholars alike."--Joanne Shattock

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.
