Tess of the D'Urbervilles is Thomas Hardy's exquisite story of one of the most famous female protagonists in English literature. With natural intonation, the artistic voice of the reader sweeps us into the charm of the English countryside and into the life of this extraordinary character. Thomas Hardy would enjoy this rendition of his Tess, the pure and simple peasant girl, the beauty, the child, the woman. We are provoked by the society that binds her with social and gender constraints. And even when she rightfully defies the men who betray her, atonement is not at hand. This memorable character will stay with you long after this vivid rendition of the novel ends. J.K.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 95]
