Tess of the D’Urbervilles, by Thomas Hardy
I reread this book a couple of years ago (having originally read it in high school), and had intended to write a review of it one of these days. The review recently posted at Powerline, though, is so good that I think I’ll just link it and save myself the trouble:

The movie version of “Far from the Madding Crowd” was released Friday night. It won’t get to the boondocks for two weeks. I anybody has seen it, I would like a brief review.
Thanks, Robert…I see it’s on at some theaters around here…not sure when I’ll get a chance to see it, but would definitely like to
Of course, I saw Hardy write ‘Tess of the d’Urbervilles’ live at the Manchester Arena. It wasn’t his best show. He started off slow, of course, but put up a fairly good show by the end. His calligraphy through the early chapters of ‘Maiden No More’ was particularly good. But of course, nothing as electric as his writing of ‘Return of the Native’, live in Dorchester, of course (which I saw live as well) — but that was some seriously epic Hardy.
Can’t hit a home run every time. I’m just glad I was there to catch the show.
Never a bad time for a Monty Python reference, Andrew.
Never a bad time…… even for a rather arcane one. Impressive, Sgt, very impressive.
And an even better link (for everyone else wondering WTH???) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogPZ5CY9KoM
I was raised on Brit humor, Andrew. And after all, I was an English major!
“After all, I was an English major”
We went to see “Far from the Madding Crowd” tonight. We enjoyed and recommend it to any of you who enjoy Victorian literature.
