  1. 1. Agriculture and Industrial Revolution in Tess of the D’Urbervilles.<br />By Kaynat, Resna, Hannah and Chloe. <br />
  2. 2. Hardy lived during a period of agricultural change.<br />England’s economy changedfrom an agricultural based one to an industry based economy. <br />The Historical context of ‘Tess of the D’Urbervilles’. <br />To using machines.<br />Tess of the D’Urbervilles was published during the IR – (1750-1900). <br />From employing labourers. <br />Industry was changing.<br />And so we can see how Hardy presented his views.<br />
  3. 3. England was rapidly changing from an agricultural society. <br />Since factories had replaced workshops, the people had to move.<br /> The social context of Tess of the D’Urbervilles. <br />To one that produced many goods. <br />People stopped living in the countrysideto large cities. <br />
  4. 4. Many AGRICULTURAL societies comprised of FEMALES.<br />Most jobs available were milking which was mainly done by women. <br /> Agriculture and industrial societies during Hardy’s lifetime. <br />So women lived agriculturally (like Tess) and males lived more industrially (like Alec).<br />The few males present would milk and churn butter as it was ‘too hard’ for females at that time.<br />The INDUSTRIAL societies had more MEN than women. <br />
  5. 5. Alec represents modern industry and Tess represents the agricultural way of life.<br />How agriculture and Industrial change influenced Hardy to create certain aspects of the characters Tess and Alec. <br />Men worked in the towns and in factories, just like Alec went to London for work. <br />Tess is also poor comparing to Alec who is rich.<br />Which implies how living the industrial way of life will mean being wealthier(like Alec) and vice versa. <br />Tess worked in a farming industry, just like the women of the period lived agriculturally. <br />
  6. 6. Hardy uses Tess and Alec to illustrate the effects of industry on agriculture. <br />How industrialism is symbolically presented in Tess of the D’Urbervilles.<br />Which symbolises the way that farmers were forced to move to the cities.<br />Alec made Tess impure.<br />Which symbolises how the industry made the atmosphere dirty and impure too.<br />Tess was compelled to marry Alec.<br />
