Hey guys
I was considering the form and structure of Tess but what's the importance of having chapters and phases (specific to this novel)??
Not many novels have phases so surely there must be some significance to it
Thanks 👌🏻

Hello!
As the novel is similar to the book of Genesis (eg Angel and Tess being compared to Adam and Eve), the 7 phases could represent 7 says of the week that God created the world in, in the book of Genesis.
However, it can also be argued that they simply represent stages of her life because as a reader, you live her life with her.
Good luck!!

Don't worry I'm in exactly the same boat... and honestly just trying to find quotes with good symbolic things to analyse but 1850s Britain is hard to get much context for me; all I can say is that it was a poverty-stricken era ruled by social inequality! Wbu???

Does anyone know how you would answer an unseen prose? Like in terms of the paragraphs and what each paragraph is on? like i know it will depend on the question, but just want an overall summary on what it will be like! Thanks
