Prepare to be swept away by the romance and drama of two masterpieces from one of the greatest figures in English literature - Thomas Hardy. Tess Of The D'ubervilles Her luminous beauty blazing against the bleak background of rural Victorian England, Tess Durbeyfield is one of literature's best-loved and most memorable heroines. Violated by one man and forsaken by another, she refuses to remain a victim. But her struggle to endure despite the abandonment of her true love - and her desperate attempt to attain happiness - propel Tess toward a tragic end. The Mayor Of Casterbridge Destitute and drunken, Michael Henchard is an itinerant farmhand who sells his wife and daughter to a sailor in a moment of alcohol- fueled desperation. So begins The Mayor Of Casterbridge, Thomas Hardy's enduring classic. Ciaran Hinds (Road To Perdition, Jane Eyre) stars as the tragic, tormented Henchard. Decades after his fateful decision, now reformed and respectable, he is offered a chance at redemption when his wife re-appears with her daughter. But the reunion's promise is soon tarnished by a web of jealousy, deceit and wounded pride.
