Book - Tess of the Durbervilles (Chiltern Classics)
Tess Of The D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
The young and unworldly Tess is thrown into the clutches of predatory Alee D'Urberville and so begins a series of events that will shape the course of her whole life. Hardy's masterful tale of tragic romance defied conventional morality and provoked outrage. Over a century on from it's first appearance, read in more enlightened times, Tess Of The D'Urbervilles has lost none of its power.
