'Barnes & Noble Classics 'pulls together a constellation of influences-biographical, historical, and literary-to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Highly controversial because of its frank look at the sexual hypocrisy of Victorian society, Thomas Hardy's 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles' was nonetheless a great commercial success when it appeared in 1891. It is now considered one of the finest novels in English. Using richly poetic language to frame a shattering narrative of love, seduction, betrayal, and murder, Hardy tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, a beautiful young woman living with her impoverished family in Wessex, the southwestern English county immortalized by Hardy. After the family learnsof their connection to the wealthy d'Urbervilles, they send Tess to claim a portion of their fortune. She meets and is seduced by the dissolute Alec d'Urberville and secretly bears a child, Sorrow, who dies in infancy. A very different man, Angel Clare, seems to offer Tess love and salvation, but he rejects her-on their wedding night-after learning of her past. Emotionally bereft, financially impoverished, and victimized by the self-righteous rigidity of English social morality, Tess escapes from her vise of passion through a horrible, desperate act. With its compassionate portrait of a young rural woman, powerful criticism of social convention, and disarming consideration of the role of destiny in human life, 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles' is one of the most moving and memorable of Hardy's novels. David Galef has published nine books: the novels 'Flesh' and 'Turning Japanese;' two children's books, 'The Little Red Bicycle' and' Tracks;' two translations of Japanese proverbs, 'Even Monkeys Fall from Trees' and 'Even a Stone Buddha Can Talk;' a work of literary criticism, 'The Supporting Cast;' an edited anthology of essays called 'Second Thoughts: A Focus on Rereading;' and, most recently, the short-story collection 'Laugh Track.' In addition, he has written more than seventy short stories for magazines ranging from the British 'Punch' to the Czech 'Prague Revue,' the Canadian 'Prism International,' and the American 'Shenandoah.' His essays and reviews have appeared in the 'New York Times, Newsday, 'the 'Village Voice, Twentieth Century Literature, The Columbia History of the British Novel,' and many other places. He is a professor of English at the University of Mississippi, where he also administers the M.F.A. program in creative writing. 506 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781593082284
