Tess of the D’Urbervilles is Thomas hardy’s representative work, as a transitional writer, his work reflect the profound changes about the social economic, politic, moral, customs and the tragic fate about the people(especially the fate of women)which caused by the capitalism intrudes England rural towns, it reveals the hypocrisy of bourgeoisie moral, legal and religion.
Tess of the D’Urbervilles concentrate on the ‘character and environment. The heroine Tess while clever beauty, diligent and kind, but as a victim of she finally was on the gallows. So what's the reasons? Here we analyze her tragic fate from the following 3 aspects:
Personally, I think that this sentence is completely without merit.
First off, at most this can only be considered a theory that some people may have developed. It's far from being true, let alone being universally acknowledged.
There are so many factors that will influence a man's decision when it comes to the subject of getting, or even wanting a wife. Whether he is in possession of a fortune, or a sizable fortune may or may not be weighed against other things that occupied his mind. For example, whether the person has prior marital experience, whether that experience was good or bad, etc.
Aside from marital factors, how he acquired the fortune may also have an impact. If it was an unexpected inheritance, there might be conditions set forth which he must be bound. But, if it was a windfall such as lottery winnings, who knows what he's gonna do.
I wouldn't be surprised to see a man who couldn't wait to get out of a marriage the minute he gets hold of a good fortune. Why would someone like that be in any desire of a wife? With the good fortune he's really lucky to have what's more precious than a wife - his freedom.
