Hey hey all =]
I'm currently studying English Literature for AS Level, and we've just read Tess of the D'Urbervilles [[which I actually quite enjoyed ]] but now we need to compare it to another 'novel' [[although not necessarily a novel as such, if you get my drift]] that relates to it in some way. It can be modern or classic fiction, but, although I'm really into reading, I'm at a loss for knowing which book to read and compare to it, because nothing I've read will work well.
So yes, that was basically my long-winded way of asking you knowledgeable types for ideas of books which would work well being compared to Tess!
All help greatly appreciated

Adam Bede by George Eliot is quite similar in principle to Tess, except the protagonist is male, in a kind of Angel Clar mould, and resists temptation - it also includes a young country girl who is corrupted by an upper-class squire, not unlike Alec's influence on Tess. So that might be quite an interesting way to compare the two novels? I read it a while ago, but I think you could do something with it! Good luck.
