Hardy’s powerful and sympathetic study of the heroic but deeply flawed Henchard is also an intensely dramatic work.

    First published in 1847, Emily Bronte's classic tale of passion, obsession, cruelty, and revenge has lost none of its power. At its heart lies the tempestuous relationship of Catherine Earnshaw of Wuthering Heights and Heathcliff, the "gypsy brat" plucked from the streets of Liverpool by her father. Their tragedy, with its terrible consequences for those who become caught up in it, unfolds in a wild moorland landscape as dark and harsh as the events themselves.

    Set in Hardy's Wessex, Tess of the D'Urbervilles is a moving novel of hypocrisy and double standards.

The novel tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, the daughter of a poor and dissipated villager, who learns that she may be descended from the ancient family of d'Urbeville.
