Week 10 Questions

The Farmer

Questions for the week 10 seminar on Tess of the D'Urbervilles:

  • Merryn Williams asserts that "Tess Durbeyfield, over and above her qualities as a person, is portrayed as a representative of her class and her sex". Consider the extent to which you agree with this statement, and the intersection of class and gender in the portrayal of Tess.
  • What different models of masculinity does the novel present?
  • The rural landscape is central to the novel; think about how locality is represented, and the implications of moving beyond this locale.
