Review:

"The project started in June of 2012 as a commission job from independent U.K.-based publishing house, Oldcastle Books, who's director has an abiding love for the old pulp covers. He asked artist David Mann to produce some covers.... What Mann came up with was a literary mash-up for the ages." Cover artist David Mann discusses the process behind creating the series" --Fast Company Online

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.

Tess of the d Urbervilles, by Thomas Hardy, is part of the Barnes Noble Classicsseries, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras.

Barnes Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influencesbiographical, historical, and literaryto enrich each reader s understanding of these enduring works. Highly controversial because of its frank look at the sexual hypocrisy of Victorian society, Thomas Hardy s Tess of the D Urbervilles was nonetheless a great commercial success when it appeared in 1891. It is now considered one of the finest novels in English. Using richly poetic language to frame a shattering narrative of love, seduction, betrayal, and murder, Hardy tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, a beautiful young woman living with her impoverished family in Wessex, the southwestern English county immortalized by Hardy. After the family learns of their connection to the wealthy d Urbervilles, they send Tess to claim a portion of their fortune. She meets and is seduced by the dissolute Alec d Urberville and secretly bears a child, Sorrow, who dies in infancy. A very different man, Angel Clare, seems to offer Tess love and salvation, but he rejects heron their wedding nightafter learning of her past. Emotionally bereft, financially impoverished, and victimized by the self-righteous rigidity of English social morality, Tess escapes from her vise of passion through a horrible, desperate act. With its compassionate portrait of a young rural woman, powerful criticism of social convention, and disarming consideration of the role of destiny in human life, Tess of the D Urbervilles is one of the most moving and memorable of Hardy s novels. David Galef has published nine books: the novels Flesh and Turning Japanese; two children s books, The Little Red Bicycle and Tracks; two translations of Japanese proverbs, Even Monkeys Fall from Trees and Even a Stone Buddha Can Talk; a work of literary criticism, The Supporting Cast; an edited anthology of essays called Second Thoughts: A Focus on Rereading; and, most recently, the short-story collection Laugh Track. In addition, he has written more than seventy short stories for magazines ranging from the British Punch to the Czech Prague Revue, the Canadian Prism International, and the American Shenandoah. His essays and reviews have appeared in the New York Times, Newsday, the Village Voice, Twentieth Century Literature, The Columbia History of the British Novel, and many other places. He is a professor of English at the University of Mississippi, where he also administers the M.F.A. program in creative writing. Seller Inventory # AAS9781593082284
