eBook (ePub): $0.99
"Tess of the d'Urbervilles" by Thomas Hardy is now considered a classic of English literature Tess Durbeyfield is the eldest daughter in a poor rural working family, a fresh, well-developed... More > country girl who looks markedly more mature than she is. A major theme of the novel is the sexual double standard to which Tess falls victim; despite being "a truly good woman", she is despised by society after losing her virginity before marriage. In fact Tess is raped when she is no more than sixteen or seventeen years old by Alec Stoke-d'Urberville, the libertine son of Simon Stokes and Mrs. d'Urberville.
