Abstract

My research paper focuses on Tess's Tragedy in Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Thomas

Hardy is the influential English novelist and realist writer in the nineteenth century. His

masterpiece Tess of D'Urbervilles has won him the world prestige. Tess’s tragic fate is

the core and clue of the novel. By analyzing the contemporary social, historical and

cultural backgrounds and the heroine's character flaws, this paper points out that Tess's

tragedy is caused by women's status of economic appendages and the subordinate position

in society. Tess’s tragedy in life is inevitable. The arrangement of the plot structure also

reflects the fatalism views of Hardy, and renders the necessity of the heroine's tragic

destiny.

Tess of the d’Urbervilles, the masterpiece of British famous critical realistic writer

Thomas Hardy, describes the misfortune of a poor peasant girl Tess, the cause of which

has always been the concern of people. This paper will practically explore Tess’s tragic

fate as the result of industrialization and patriarchal society, which will help the reader to

understand Hardy’s Tess of d’Urbervilles from a new angle.

Key words: Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Tess, Industrialization, Patriarchal society,


Character flaw, fatalism.
