Spring Book Club: Tess of the D’Urbervilles
For a Victorian thrill of a novel that will have you pondering relations between the sexes, the power of social conventions, and our place in the cosmos, turn with us to Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles, the Book Club selection we shall be discussing Tuesday, 27 April.
Here are some Points to Ponder as you experience this novel.
Here is some background on the Church of England as you read.
The OXymorons Book Club will meet Tuesday, April 27, 5:00-6:30 p.m. We recommend you purchase the Norton Critical Edition because it provides Hardy’s definitive text from the 1912 Wessex Edition, as well as worthwhile critical essays and samples of Hardy’s poetry.
