Publisher's Summary

Tess, the young and lovely heroine of Hardy's classic tale, knows instinctively that the path she is choosing is the wrong one. But, a child of her times, what can she do but follow the dictates of her family?

Against the lovely background of the English countryside, Thomas Hardy sets his tale of seduction and betrayal as Tess, his beautiful heroine, speeds to her destruction.

Lusted after by one man, set on a pedestal by another, Thomas Hardy's lovely heroine Tess is betrayed by both. Full of images of light and shade, Tess of the D'Urbervilles makes splendid listening in a tale that is both passionate and tender.

(P)1993 HarperCollins UK

    "A brilliant production"

    Eleanor Bron excels in this reading of 'Tess'. I have been a fan of Hardy and, in particular of this novel which I consider to be his second best. Eleanor Bron's reading is remarkable - she manages to depict the purity of Tess' spirit and the pressures on her. Her accent is brilliant. I would recommend this to lovers of Hardy and to all who like a really well constructed novel. This recording also gains by the fact that it is unabridged.
