    I'm studying Tess too. Today I've been reading over some analysis on Schmoop (http://www.shmoop.com/tess-of-the-durbervilles/) and I've been gathering some key quotes together.

    do you know how you would structure the Tess of the D'urbevilles question ?

    I thought it was quite good. Question for Tess was something like 'explore the view that Tess is primarily the victim of her poverty' and the one for the tragedy anthology for poetry was 'explore the view that poets writing in the tragic tradition always present the world as uncaring and indifferent to human tragedy'

    I thought the Tess question was horrible
    what were your points?

    did you do Thomas Hardy poems?

    I talked about how her poverty was the driving force for 'claiming kin', that Alec used her financial dependence on him o take advantage of her and that Angel uses it to insult her and distance himself from her after the confessions, as he calls her an 'unapprehending peasant woman'

    Other factors - I included how society labelled her as a 'fallen woman' which lead to her being shunned, I discussed patriarchy and the element of fate - 'it was to be' and the 'President of the Immortals' had 'ended his sport' with Tess

    And no, I studied the anthology for poetry
