However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage.
A bad guy who is fabulously talented in bed and a good guy who fumbles sex can complicate life for a girl. My purpose in considering the idea was that I might perhaps persuade one other person to read this novel who might not otherwise.
I am all about service to my fellow man. However, there are strange aspects of this novel that when discussed in remove from the novel itself can make it sound off-putting. I will mention a few of those without emphasizing them. They involve weird twists in the plot handed us through the vehicle of some strange scenes.
On the other hand I do not wish simply to offer diamond-like passages from this novel, although that is tempting. But let us take a shot here. Tess is the eldest daughter in a poor family in 19th century England. The novel follows events in her life from the time she is sixteen until she is approximately 21, let us say.
There are a multitude of detailed plot outlines of this novel to be found elsewhere on line. The only valuable supplement to those that I can offer is to say bluntly what those plot outlines say in such a roundabout way that it loses impact or can be missed entirely.
Tess is one hot looking sixteen-year-old female human being.
It is out of the fact that Tess is one hot looking sixteen-year-old that all the action of this novel arises. At the time of her first seduction, or rape, she is described as one who has a "coarse pattern" laid over her "beautiful feminine tissue.
She is a pretty young girl with that look about her that drives men wild—that look about her being something rarely encountered in a girl so young. I would rather put it this way. When Hardy writes about her when she is in relatively unspoiled natural surroundings, it is apparent that she herself is very much at home in and a natural part of those surroundings.
Hardy places our hot looking sixteen-year-old girl in an environment with some problems. It is an environment wherein the Victorian morals of society are so completely at odds with the nature of men and women generally, and particularly in the realm of sex.
Second, she inhabits a rural area of England where the quality of life is slowly deteriorating. Hardy does not impose upon us with some heavy-handed social commentary at all. Rather, this social commentary is portrayed seamlessly along with the characters and the action.The Thomas Gray Archive is a collaborative digital archive and research project devoted to the life and work of eighteenth-century poet, letter-writer, and scholar Thomas Gray (), author of the acclaimed 'Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard' ().

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory Since this novel is an odd blend of romantic and realistic elements (see the "Genre" section for more information on this), it makes sense.
