    HEADLINE A bad guy who is fabulously talented in bed and a good guy who fumbles sex can complicate life for a girl.I ought to have my head examined for undertaking a review of Tess of the d Ubervilles, the next to the last of Thomas Hardy s novels My purpose in considering the idea was that I might perhaps persuade one other person to read this novel who might n

    Tess of the d Urbervilles is not a feel good book, which sharply sets it apart from the other 19th century novels about young women think Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre, for instance No, it s sad and depressing to the point where it almost makes me angry Because poor Tess, prone to making choice that are invariably the worst for her, just cannot catch a

    This novel is really about timing, it effects us all, meet someone at the wrong time or go north instead of south, your life can end badly Ordinary events, can change our destiny Timing is everything Tess Durbeyfield is born into a poor, rural, southern English family of eight, in the village of Marlott, Wessex A lazy father, John, with a taste for the bottle, and a mother, Joan, who would rather sing the latest songs, than do

    I need to start by venting all the despair I felt reading Thomas Hardy s Tess of the D Ubervilles This tale is certainly not Pride or Prejudice or even Jane Eyre where the heroines have the prospect or the hope of happiness What could a woman of Tess s time and situation hope for Contentment But not even that was in store for our poor heroine Tess sweet, loving nature is invariably abused by men, specifically the two central male characters of
