Patreon Post Unlocked: Tess (1979)

I’m hugely fond of Thomas Hardy’s novels, having started graduate study in the topic of Victorian literature. What appeals to me is how Hardy tried to write complex women struggling with and against 19th-century moral strictures, without sentimentalizing or sensationalizing women. He did an admirable job considering his own biases and strained relationships with the women in his life. One of his greatest and perhaps best-known works is Tess of the d’Urbervilles: A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented (1891). And the first and best filmed adaption of this novel is Tess (1979).
