Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This critical edition of Thomas Hardy's widely taught 1891 British Victorian novel reprints the authoritative second impression of the 1920 Wessex edition together with critical essays that approach the work from five contemporary critical perspectives, and highly praised editorial apparatus that introduces the readers to the novel and the perspectives. The five essays illustrate cultural criticism, deconstruction, feminist and gender criticism, the new historicism, and reader-response criticism.

Book News Annotation:

Introduces students to several critical approaches to literature through a reading of Hardy's novel. Includes a 1920 reimpression of the novel and essays on New Historicism, feminist and gender criticism, deconstruction, reader-response criticism, and cultural criticism. Each of these essays includes an overview of the approach, the approach applied to Tess, and a selected bibliography. No index. Distributed by St. Martin's Press.
