Tess of the d'Urbervilles, title page of the edition Phase the First: Tess is the oldest child of John and Joan Durbeyfield, uneducated peasants. However, John is given the impression by Parson Tringham that he may have noble blood, as "Durbeyfield" is a corruption of "D'Urberville", the surname of an extinct noble Norman family.
Tess is the oldest child of John and Joan Durbeyfield, uneducated peasants. That same day, Tess participates in the village May Dancewhere she meets Angel Clare, youngest son of Reverend James Clare, who is on a walking tour with his two brothers.
He stops to join the dance and partners several other girls. Angel notices Tess too late to dance with her, as he is already late for a promised meeting with his brothers. Although Tess tells them about her fear that he might try to seduce her, her parents encourage her to accept the job, secretly hoping that Alec might marry her.
When Alec rides up and offers to "rescue" her from the situation, she accepts.
Instead of taking her home, however, he rides through the fog until they reach an ancient grove in a forest called "The Chase", where he informs her that he is lost and leaves on foot to get his bearings.
Alec returns to find Tess asleep, and it is implied that he rapes her, although there remains a degree of ambiguity.
The following summer, she gives birth to a sickly boy who lives only a few weeks. On his last night alive, Tess baptises him herself, because her father would not allow the parson to visit, stating that he did not want the parson to "pry into their affairs".
Tess adds a homemade cross to the grave with flowers in an empty marmalade jar.
The Rally 16—24 [ edit ] More than two years after the Trantridge debacle, Tess, now twenty, has found employment outside the village, where her past is not known. She works for Mr.
Crick as a milkmaid at Talbothays Dairy. There, she befriends three of her fellow milkmaids, Izz, Retty, and Marian, and meets again Angel Clare, now an apprentice farmer who has come to Talbothays to learn dairy management.
Although the other milkmaids are in love with him, Angel singles out Tess, and the two fall in love. The Consequence 25—34 [ edit ] "He jumped up from his seat The Clares have long hoped that Angel would marry Mercy Chant, a pious schoolmistress, but Angel argues that a wife who knows farm life would be a more practical choice.
He tells his parents about Tess, and they agree to meet her. Angel returns to Talbothays Dairy and asks Tess to marry him.
This puts Tess in a painful dilemma: Angel obviously thinks her a virgin, and she shrinks from confessing her past. However, he is pleased by this news because he thinks it will make their match more suitable in the eyes of his family.
As the marriage approaches, Tess grows increasingly troubled. She writes to her mother for advice; Joan tells her to keep silent about her past.With Reverso you can find the English translation, definition or synonym for Tess and thousands of other words.
