Tess of the d’Urbervilles, a remarkable novel by Thomas Hardy (1891), is an embodiment in fiction of the Tragedy of the Woman, -the world-old story of her fall, and of her battle with man to recover her virginity of soul. Tess, a beautiful village girl, is a lineal descendant of the ancient D’Urberville family. A novel created apparently by inexorable forces of nature, it is joined by its strength and pitilessness to the blind powers of the world. Yet it is not without sunny spaces, revelations of warm nooks of earth hidden from the blasts of the tempest. Condition: very good (hardcover). Price R190. Can be couriered to any place in South Africa at an additional cost
