A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented

One of the most tragic and moving books in the English language. It is difficult to imagine in our enlightened age, the devastating effect of pregnancy out of wedlock could have on a woman in Victorian England. Hardy explores the theme with great sympathy and obvious anger at the double standards of his age, of which this book offers a searing criticism. I love the way the landscape and the settings in the book reflect the human emotions that are being portrayed in the characters. Although tess of the d'urbervilles made me cry and leaves a sombre, indeed shocked after effect, the lasting impression is of the idyllic, pastoral chapters of Tess's life as a dairy maid and the blossoming love for Angel Clare. The subtitle is "A pure woman faithfully presented" which leaves us in no doubt about Hardy's own opinion.
