This book offers a fresh approach to Hardy's novel, highlighting its modern qualities. Dale Kramer reexamines the main characters and investigates Hardy's handling of the plot and the novel's characteristics as a tragedy. He gives special consideration to Tess's search for her identity, and the role of her sexuality in this process. He also discusses the work's rural background, its place in Victorian literature, and its influence and reception.

"...a judicious and discriminating scholarly study of Tess...anyone wanting a solid and perceptive introduction to Tess will find Kramer's little book a sure guide." English Literature in Transition
