After the death of her child, she makes her way to a prosperous farm where, working as a milkmaid, she meets and eventually marries the handsome Angel Clare. On learning of her past however, he abandons her and with little choice and facing a life of extreme hardship, again falls into Alec's clutches and becomes a kept woman. Written by garykmcd. A series that is very hard to watch let alone enjoy. The social injustices, the criminality, the misfortunes, the stupidity, the callousness, the hatred, the misunderstanding, the selfishness, the vicious ego, the dreadful life This is not entertainment, but rather a tortuous emotional provoking and roller coaster ride which unfolded screen by screen throughout the series in the worst sense of darkness and tragedy journey all the way to the last screen.
Good cast with fine acting job. Beautiful scenery and very appropriate color tones throughout.

Logging out…. Logging out You've been inactive for a while, logging you out in a few seconds I'm Still Here! Welcome to Tess of the D'Urbervilles, the world's most jacked-up novel about a girl who gets raped and impregnated by her fake cousin, buries her illegitimate baby semi-illegally, gets spurned by her new husband because she tells him she was raped nice dude, eh? Oh yeah, and then gets hanged.
No, we're not joking.
Tess of the D'Urbervilles
No, we're not embellishing. You might imagine that a stab-happy chick who hangs out evading the fuzz at Stonehenge would be leather-clad, have a side business as a bounty hunter, or at least would be a total dirtbag. You'd be wrong.
The titular Tess is a total sweetie who has very bad luck. And yes—this is a Victorian novel overrun with the Victorian Era's stifling manners, stifling corsets, and stifling social contracts , but it's also Victorian novel by Thomas Hardy. No, not the guy who played Mad Max. Thomas Hardy was an English novelist and poet writing at the end of the 19th Century. But he did have one thing in common with Mad Max: he was a total rebel.
Thomas Hardy's willingness to challenge contemporary views of sexual morality and marriage made many of his novels super-controversial when they first appeared. Tess of the D'Urbervilles was no exception. Pearl-clutching abounded. People probably literally swooned. But get a load of how messed-up Victorian ideals were—it wasn't Hardy's willingness to describe the rape, but his defiant insistence that Tess herself remains pure in spite of it, that made the novel controversial. Tess was first published in , but Hardy had been working on it in some form or other since about The manuscript went through a lot of different versions, and the controversial bits made it difficult for him to find a publisher.
The publishers who rejected the novel put it more or less bluntly, the consensus was basically that Tess both the character and the novel was too sexy to be put in print.
