'Hardy watches over Tess like a stricken victim. He is as tender to Tess as Tess is to the world. Tender and helpless' -Irving Howe
Into his story of a simple but beautiful country girl's seduction by another man which causes her husband to leave her on their wedding night and thereby precipitates a course of events that ends in murder, Hardy wove a luminous tenderness and longing. 'I have never been able to put on paper all that she is, or was to me,' he said.
In defying convention and making a milkmaid the subject of tragedy, Hardy gave rein to his feeling for landscape and rural life -its harshness, seasonl rhythms and reminders of death and resurrection- and endows them with a brooding symbolism and visionary beauty.
