Thomas Hardy - Tess of the D'Urbervilles
Young Tess Durbeyfield attempts to restore her family's fortunes by claiming their connection with the aristocratic d'Urbervilles. But Alec d'Urberville is a rich wastrel who seduces her and makes her life miserable. When Tess meets Angel Clare, she is offered true love and happiness, but her past catches up with her and she faces an agonizing moral choice. Hardy's indictment of society's double standards, and his depiction of Tess as 'a pure woman', caused controversy in his day and has held the imagination of readers ever since. Hardy thought it his finest novel, and Tess the most deeply felt character he ever created. This unique critical text is taken from the authoritative Clarendon edition, which is based on the manuscript collated with all Hardy's subsequent revisions.

For he has told of how his young bride Edith and other members of his exploring party were spirited away by the unearthly androgynous Dweller of the Moon Pool - a "thing" that arises at the full moon from the wailed ruins of an ancient Polynesian culture and manifests itself amid the faint chanting of voices, a drifting, undulating, crystalline chiming, and a glittering cluster of palely colored lights. Its embrace induces feelings of both rapture and terror in its prey, a state that Throckmartin describes was "as though the icy soul of evil and the fiery soul of good had stepped together within me." Bearing the peculiar small white mark of the Shining One, Throckmartln had miraculously escaped the fate of his friends. And then, before Goodwin's eyes, aboard the ship that is bearing them both across the Southern seas beneath another full moon, Throckmartin disappears in the glistening embrace of the pursuing Dweller of the Moon Pool. Determined to solve the rnystery of the Moon Pool and learn the fate of Throckmartin and his party, Goodwin sets out on an expedition that includes among its members an Irish air ace named Larry O'Keefe, a huge modern Viking named Olaf Huldricksson, and a sinister Soviet scientist named Marakinoff. Following Throckmartin's directions to the island ruins, the party plunges into a fantastic adventure at the site of the Moon Pool that is an imaginative tour de force seldom equalled in science fiction.
