Product description


THE STORY is well known, but listening to an unabridged reading will always illuminate fresh themes and details. It also highlights the range of Hardy's writing, which can move from the 'opalised light of the moon' in heavenscapes, through sweeping landscapes down to a single dewdrop. Anna Bentinck conveys superbly Hardy's nuances of tone from the locals' country accents to Angel Clare's fastidious correctness. D'Urberville sounds kindly rather than just a wheedling cad which gives the listener deeper understanding and sympathy for Tess's predicament. --Rachel Redford, The Oldie

About the Author

Thomas Hardy was born in 1840 in Dorchester, Dorset. He enrolled as a student in King s College, London, but never felt at ease there, seeing himself as socially inferior. This preoccupation with society, particularly the declining rural society, featured heavily in Hardy s novels, with many of his stories set in the fictional county of Wessex. Since his death in 1928, Hardy has been recognised as a significant poet, influencing The Movement poets in the 1950s and 1960s.
