  • HAPPY NEW YEARS ENGLISH AND TAMIL 2011 and 2042 GOOD MORNING
  • Tess of the D’Urbervilles A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented Thomas Hardy
  • Summary 2 [ From Companion to Literature in English, Edited by Ian Ousby]
  • The novel expresses Hardy’s rejection of the conventional heroine of Victorian fiction .
  • Unwisely Parson Tringham tells John Durbeyfield , a haggler of Marlott, that he is descended from the ancient Norman family of d’Urbervilles .
  • Fortified by this information, he and his wife Joan encourage their daughter Tess to seek the kinship of the Stoke d’Urbervilles , themselves not entitled to the illustrious name.
  • She is seduced by their son, the vulgar rake Alec , and bears a child that mercifully dies .
  • To make a fresh start Tess goes to work in southern Wessex at the fertile Talbothays farm where she meets Angel Clare , younger son of a parson and, after a struggle within herself, accepts his offer of marriage .
  • On their wedding night Tess confesses her unhappy past to Angel , who recoils in puritanical horror.
  • He goes off to Brazil and Tess seeks employment at the grim upland farm, Flintcomb Ash , belonging to the tyrannical Farmer Groby .
  • There she is again afflicted by the advances of Alec, now an itinerant preacher.
  • He is insistent that Tess is more his wife than Angel’s and relentless in his pursuit of her.
  • Angel returns to England a wiser man and traces Tess to Sandbourne where she is living as Alec’s wife.
  • She considers it too late for reconciliation and sends him away .
  • In her despair and entrapment she kills Alec and, after a brief idyllic period with Angel , is arrested at Stonehenge, tried, and hanged in Wintoncestor goal.
