About the Author

Thomas Hardy was born on June 2, 1840, in Higher Bockhampton, England. The eldest child of Thomas and Jemima, Hardy studied Latin, French, and architecture in school. He also became an avid reader. Upon graduation, Hardy traveled to London to work as an architect's assistant under the guidance of show more Arthur Bloomfield. He also began writing poetry. How I Built Myself a House, Hardy's first professional article, was published in 1865. Two years later, while still working in the architecture field, Hardy wrote the unpublished novel The Poor Man and the Lady. During the next five years, Hardy penned Desperate Remedies, Under the Greenwood Tree, and A Pair of Blue Eyes. In 1873, Hardy decided it was time to relinquish his architecture career and concentrate on writing full-time. In September 1874, his first book as a full-time author, Far from the Madding Crowd, appeared serially. After publishing more than two dozen novels, one of the last being Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Hardy returned to writing poetry--his first love. Hardy's volumes of poetry include Poems of the Past and Present, The Dynasts: Part One, Two, and Three, Time's Laughingstocks, and The Famous Tragedy of the Queen of Cornwall. From 1833 until his death, Hardy lived in Dorchester, England. His house, Max Gate, was designed by Hardy, who also supervised its construction. Hardy died on January 11, 1928. His ashes are buried in Poet's Corner at Westminster Abbey. (Bowker Author Biography) show less

Short biography
Thomas Hardy (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, including the poetry of William Wordsworth. He was highly critical of much in Victorian society, especially on the declining status of rural people in Britain, such as those from his native South West England.

While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, he gained fame as the author of novels such as Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). During his lifetime, Hardy's poetry was acclaimed by younger poets (particularly the Georgians) who viewed him as a mentor. After his death his poems were lauded by Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden and Philip Larkin.

Many of his novels concern tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances, and they are often set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex; initially based on the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom, Hardy's Wessex eventually came to include the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Hampshire and much of Berkshire, in southwest and south central England. Two of his novels, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Far from the Madding Crowd, were listed in the top 50 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.

Fascinating and well structured, enjoyable reading too. Packed with expertly crafted characters.
The new heir to Stancy Castle, Paula Power (such a name resonates as a present day character, but we are in fact set deep in Victorian England, approximately 1881), find herself caught between two lovers, and being a Laodicean, her prevaricating sets up all sorts of problems.
Notably, her two suitors are a bit dim, one an architect who happens to be passing at the same time as Paula has redevelopment plans for the castle, and the other a listless sort of military officer (De Stancy) who is from the ancient family whose castle is now in her hands, a result of his father's bankruptcy.
There is one vile character, a colonial criminal whose devilish scheming creates so much of the second guessing and chaotic action for both suitors and heiress.
Much of the action is Wessex based still, but Paula's wild pursuit of her architect also takes her to Western Europe.
Hardy introduces the telegraph into the story; his characters are fully used to reliable train services both locally and abroad. Is Hardy the first writer to describe the hum of a telegraph wire in the breeze (1881) on Page 20?
Hardy, one of the best!

Tess of the D'Urbervilles is the kind of book that makes you wish you were back in one of your Brit Lit classes debating it with equally enthusiastic classmates. An erudite novel replete with Biblical, mythological and cultural references left as clues for the close reader to interpret in Thomas Hardy's exploration of whether we are defined by our actions or our intentions.

Hardy's eponymous heroine is a sixteen-year-old country girl at the story's outset, just removed from school and under the guidance of her uneducated parents who have recently discovered their noble ancestry. At their behest, she travels to the nearby estate of a wealthy relative to seek employment and a financially beneficial match. Unfortunately, the supposed relatives have in fact appropriated the family name, rather than being born into it, and the naive Tess is set upon and disgraced by the scoundrel son, Alec. Her self-assessed punishment is to run away from family and friends, working in anonymity as milkmaid on a faraway farm.

The remainder of Tess's story is a disheartening reminder that one's past cannot be left behind. She finds love, only to be scorned by a hypocritical husband guilty of her same crime (absent an out of wedlock birth). Her shiftless parents burden her for money in their ignorance regarding her impoverished life. Worst of all, she suffers the renewed advances of the irredeemable Alec.

Tess of the D'Urbervilles is a critical analysis of late 18th century England morals and manners with a healthy dose of Ecclesiastical philosophy thrown in: the repetitive nature of Tess's sad life is mere proof that there is nothing new under the sun.

Such a well written and painful book. Hardy's writing is amazing, so detailed and descriptive, and he seems to describe everything! His 3 main characters are so well portrayed I felt for all of them and was sad so much of the time I was reading this book. Tess was a woman of courage who sufferered greatly, but was much more than a victim. She worked herself very hard and tried to please the love of her life as much as she possibly could. She also realized that she had a right to be treated respectfully. The ending is very logical and both very depressing and very hopeful.… (more)

Angel Clare - I can't stand him, urghhh!
Angel was a whiney, pathetic, hypocritical, self-obsessed oaf from his first moody sigh to his last melodramatic tear. The only reason I'd want to see him is so I could kick him.
Angel, I hate you.
Tess, I'm sorry you loved an unredeemable man. You deserved so much better.
