Overview

Coming to PBS in January 2009- a MasterpieceTM Classic production of Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’UrbervillesTess Durbeyfield knows what it is to work hard and expect little. But her life is about to veer from the path trod by her mother and grandmother. When her ne’er-do-well father learns that his family is the last of a long noble line, the d’Urbervilles, he sends Tess on a journey to meet her supposed kin- a journey that will see her victimized by lust, poverty, and hypocrisy. With its sensitive depiction of one of literature’s most admirable and tragic heroines and its powerful criticism of social convention, Tess of the D’Urbervilles is one of the most moving and poetic of Thomas Hardy’s novels.
