Onleihe. Tess of the dUrbervilles




A young strong-willed peasant girl, becomes the affection of two men, in the end tragically falling into the arms of one. Full of symbolism, biblical reference and in elaborated prose, Tess tells about the struggling against circumstances of a pretty country girl. Seduced and condemned Tess falls victim to sexual double standard in Victorian England. Roman Polanski adapted the novel in film with Nastassja Kinski as Tess.
