Lors de sa parution, le livre a scandalisé la société intolérante qu'il dénonçait, au point de dégoûter son auteur d'écrire des romans.
T. Hardy situe son récit dans l'Angleterre puritaine du 19ème siècle, dans les milieux ruraux du pays. Tess, jolie jeune fille, est stigmatisée très jeune par sa liaison -courte et forcée- avec un libertin. Par la suite, toute ses tentatives pour retrouver une vie "normale" échoueront, car la morale étriquée de l'époque (spécialement envers les femmes) ne saurait lui pardonner sa "faute".
Tess, par certains côtés, peut être comparée à Lady Chatterley : Les deux femmes sont la victime des préjugés de leur époque, et toutes deux finiront par se révolter, mais de façon très différente. Lady Chatterley fuira son milieu et son pays pour suivre celui qu'elle aime, Tess tuera celui qu'elle considère comme le responsable de ses malheurs. Pour Lady Chatterley, la vie continuera, celle de Tess se terminera au bout d'une corde.
Le livre est très agréable à lire, en dépit de quelques longueurs, le style est toujours alerte et élégant, les phrases, plutôt longues, sont toujours très équilibrées. Les descriptions des paysages champêtres sont remarquables, les lire revient à contempler une toile de Constable ou de Turner.
Un livre que je recommande, donc, il peut être lu assez facilement, même par ceux qui ne maitrisent pas à fond les subtilités de l'anglais.

Tess of the D'Urbervilles 18 juin 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book has touched me in a very different way than many others have. It is a tragic story and envelopes the reader in a different kind of sadness - a sadness which one cannot pull out of quickly or just draw aside. Many thoughts contained in this book are worthy of reflection. Each lingers in your heart. The happy moments are all tinged with a bitter taste. Each character is flawed as a natural human being and each mistake they make reflects on their future and affects them drastically. Tess Durbeyfield is one of the most tragic characters I have ever read of. From the moment she leaves her home to the supposed D'Urberville relatives, she is pushed into catastrophes and heartaches that just lead to more doom. I recommend this book to any reader who is willing to undergo the myriad of emotions that accompanies Tess's journey through demise. It is not for the flippant, unconcerned, and unsympathetic reader. Everything that happens to Tess happens for a reason, and the reader must be able to realize how each affects her to appreciate this book. Read this book and expect to ponder on many philosophical wonderings. This book WILL affect you! It is worthy of any person seeking a deep and life-affecting novel.

Beautifully Written and Pessimistic 2 septembre 2008
Par E. Moeckel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Bleak and depressing, as far as the plot is concerned it's sort of like Hardy was experimenting with how many terrible things he could make happen to a trusting, wonderful person, until she's finally crushed under the weight of the world and her society. Really makes you feel awful to read it, honestly, but that's ok because the writing is beautiful and the structure is flawless. There are moments of pure poetry on a Shakespearean level, that make you want to weep for all humanity. The characters, especially Tess, are very believable, and the psychology effecting their decisions is what drives the story, for me. I'm impressed, I'm going to read more Hardy. I've looked around and it seems like most of his books are similar - a great set-up to a disaster, all the while people's hearts being ripped out of their chests and their hopes and dreams crushed one after another by a cruel world and cruel circumstances. He obviously had a pretty tragic and pessimistic view of our human situation, but a view that must have filled him with sympathy. He really goes into his characters' heads and makes you feel their pain through it all, going through the stages of their grief, with really amazing descriptions that feel dead on. Or at least that's what he did in this book.

Also, it's pretty amazing that he blatantly pointed out the sexual double standards of his time and their utter hipocrysy. It's so crazy that people in Hardy's day were outraged after the publication of this book by the subtitle, "A Pure Woman," because Tess was raped. When you keep in mind how firmly these ideas of purity and female sexuality were implanted in people's minds, it makes the plot completely believable.

Cruel To Be Cruel 27 juin 2012
Par Slokes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When is pain the necessary entry price for involving oneself in great fiction, and when is it simply something you might call "author abuse"? I believe the tipping place can be found somewhere in the pages of Thomas Hardy's most famous novel.

In it, we meet young Tess Durbeyfield, a simple English farm girl who struggles to make it through everyday life. Her father, convinced he's the rightful heir of an extinct family of Norman nobles, the D'Urbervilles, is a shiftless layabout who drinks and lets his numerous children do his chores. The family starves quite pitifully until fate puts in the first of several appearances. Tess meets a rich young bravo who goes by the D'Urberville name and decides to merge his bloodline with that of Tess, no matter what she thinks about that.

Alec D'Urberville is one of two men whose attentions cause Tess much heartache and make up the substance of the book. Actually, there are three such men if you count Hardy, which I pretty much do. Alec is a right cad and Angel Clare, the other man, manages the impressive feat of being much worse, but neither lays for Tess the snares Hardy does, of horrible coincidences, contrived reverses in character, and way too much tolerance for ill treatment. There's even a letter-swallowing carpet. Man, I hate when carpets do that!

When Hardy isn't pounding poor Tess into the ground, he's doing the same to us, pointing out how Tess in her misery represents the nullity of our common existence. "She might have seen that what had bowed her head so profoundly - the thought of the world's concern at her situation - was founded on an illusion," he writes. "She was not an existence, an experience, a passion, a structure of sensations, to anyone but herself."

If only!

Here's the rub. "Tess" is a pretty pleasing book to read if you manage to ignore or at least discount the plot. Hardy writes with great verve and knowledge about the world of his characters, fictional Wessex with its villages of hayricks and barn dances. At times it's like reading Wordsworth, and at others it's like reading Lovecraft. I don't know how else to describe a writer who can wax so lyrical and then shift into something darkly surreal and macabre without missing a beat. He was a master of description at the height of his powers in 1891 when he published this.

"Tess" is also a deep book, with much Biblical allusion and symbolic foreshadowing matted into the subtext. Reading the novel with an online study guide helps bring out a rich harvest of Hardy's learned genius, as you can see the careful layering and connecting up he does throughout the book.

Alas, it doesn't make the story itself any more digestible.

Tess herself is hard not to care for, but she's frustratingly passive in a way that can not be blamed simply on the time and place where her story is set. She seems more of a piece with something Hardy was trying to say of the human condition, of suffering being one's lot in this vale of tears. You keep hoping things will turn around, but pretty soon you see the author has other ideas. Hardy pretty much wants her to suffer, so she does.

Maybe in some imaginary alternative existence, I'll be treated to the scene of Hardy being called to some kind of literary court of law, answering for the misery he put me through here. I'll gladly waive my charges against him - only if they let me watch when it's Tess's turn to collect.

I read this for fun (really!) 9 octobre 2013
Par Patrick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As a former English major, I never had the opportunity to read Hardy. So, when I read that Hardy was one of Jhumpa Lahiri's favorite authors (and JL is one of MY favorites), I decided to read my first Hardy novel. I'm not sure why I selected "Tess" over some of Hardy's more celebrated works, but once I started I was hooked. As others have stated, it's terribly sad and tragic (as literature of this period can be), but I didn't find that to be a problem. And, even though it was a bit daunting to read a "classic" without the assistance and discipline of a classroom and teacher (pop quizzes!), the prose, while beautiful and dense, was fluid and easy to follow (there are some antiquated terms and jargon, but that's what Google is for). I will now watch the Polanski film, which I hear is just as great. If you're looking for a classic that will truly speak to the time it was written, which speaks to the social conventions of Victorian England and the role (oppression) of poor women in that time, you can't do better. I was never bored, but I really focused and plowed through. You won't regret it.

Total Immersion into a World of Bitter Sadness 1 septembre 2008
Par Tracy L. Graham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book will capture you and pull you in as you follow Tess Durbeyfeild, the blameless rape victim whose tragic jounrey through Wessex, England brings her love, despair, comedy (yes, there is some), friendships, tears, self-awareness, empowerment, but ultimately tragedy.

This book is sad...yes, but Thomas Hardy's poetic prose litterally makes the insides of the reader do summersaults. This story printed on the pages of "Tess" are more than a novel, they are a portal into the world of a blameless woman. You'll feel the pain of these characters, escpeically our heroine Tess.
