1. Tess of the D’Urbervilles. Thomas Hardy. Published by James R. Osgood, McIlvaine and Co., London,1891. First edition, first issue.

    Hardy exposes the falsity and hypocrisy of a society that unquestioningly condemns actions that are born out of privation and injustice. He challenges prevailing attitudes through his depiction of a character who, despite her seemingly desperate actions, actually represents honesty, wisdom and harmony with nature.
