1.1 Notion of style.Genre

The text under analysis is a novel entitled “Tess of the D’urbervilles”. It belongs to the belles letters style,sub-style is emotive prose. It has the features of this style:
• Genuine imagery achieved by expressive devices.
• The use of words in contextual and more than one dictionary least influenced by the lexical environment • Peculiar individual selection of vocabulary and syntax reflecting personal evaluation of things or phenomena “Tess of the D’urbervilles” is a victorian,tragic,didactic novel teaching the reader a moral lesson and showing the forming of the character.Tess isn’t a traditional tragedy.It takes place in a rural setting and it isn’t about the fall of a great and noble character,we also want to point out that it’s a “pastoral” story that portrays the country (as opposed to the city) in an idealized or romantic way.Most of the bad stuff that happens to Tess is a result of modernization and civilization,and not from anything that would have originated in the country.The language of the novel is literary,expressive,communicating tone,attitude and feeling.The novel is a rich blend of events,feelings that invites readers to probe below its deceptively simple surface for deeper truths.

1. Social and cultural background.

Let’s examine social and cultural context and values of the story.There are some symbols in the story.Red and White are the two colors that we see in the story.Red is the sign of sin,love,hatred,while white is associated with purity and innocence.That is why in the first scene we see Tess wearing a white dress that Tess isn’t like other girls.In another scene,when Tess murders Alec there is the scarlet blot in the middle of the white ceiling. The D’urberville family vault is always in Tess’s mind and she returns to her ancestors in the end.The tomb is referred to when speaking about her noble family,the things her ancestors might have done and the life they might have had. The chase,all that remained of the ancient forest,is compared to the Slopes of the Valley where Alec’s family lived.The chase represents the old civilization,the past,the nature contrasted to the new,present life;where ”everything looked like money – like the last coin issued from the mint.” Brazil,where Angel Clare wants to go,start a new life,is the symbol of changes,happiness,freedom from prejudices,which is broken by his illness and return back to his home. There are some realia in “Tess of the D’urbervilles”.Some geographical realia:the Chase,the Slopes,the village of Marlott,the Vale of Blackmoor(or Blackemore),Shaston. Ethnographic realia:farmer,landlady;May day dance;Parson,Priest,Sir,Mrs;pound. Thomas Hardy was an English novelist and poet.His works belong to the Naturalism movement.Several...
