Dear Tess of the D UrbervillesI m writing you this letter because you pissed me off I m angry Tess I ve got a lot to say to you and I want you to hear it I will warn you though I m not holding anything back We re going to talk about everything everything that happens in your life from beginning to end How could you be so silly How could you be so hapless and so helpless Why do you seem to be an ill fated walking disaster of doom trodden woe Why oh why did you never learn anything Tess you re an absolute idiot It s okay I understand You were young and inexperienced in the beginning But why were you still by the end Your only act of courage was nothing but pure stupidity It could only end one way after that How could you not see Alec s wolfish nature in the beginning The man forced fed you fruit he made you part your lips whilst he shoved his all too suggestive strawberry in your mouth How could you not see the nature of such an imposing act Read over it Tess See it from my point of view They are already here D Urberville began gathering specimens of the fruit for her handing them back to her as he stooped and presently selecting a specially fine product of the British ueen variety he stood up and held it by the stem to her mouthNo no she said uickly putting her fingers between his hand and her lips I would rather take it in my own handNonsense he insisted and in a slight distress she parted her lips and took it inHow could you not see his motives I understand that your mother didn t teach you anything Your parents threw you into the world and let you bare their burdens of responsibility I understand that was a large task But still how can you not see that this man was sniffing round you and only after one thing Why didn t you run Why didn t you get as far away as possible form such an insincere degenerate cur as Alec D Urberville After that Tess I just couldn t believe in your character I cannot believe that someone could possibly be as stupid as you Tess I m sorry Tess but you were just badly written You just seemed a little bit too fatalistic It s like you d given up on life before you d even experienced it You just went from disaster to disaster without realising that most men of your time were pigs You didn t learn anything it s like you were born with a pre ordained destiny to take shit from everybody and then die You just trudged through muck and then went looking for afterwards If you re characterisation is emblematic of Victorian womanhood then every Victorian woman has been terrible insulted I understand that the problems you faced were real You came across real injustice Tess There s no denying that What Alec did to you was pure evil What Angel did you was nothing short of neglect One rule for men and another for women eh Tess You really experienced misogyny and injustice I know and I feel sorry for you but Tess you were just so unbelievably weak Why did you go running back to Angel after what he did to you He clearly didn t love you Why did you wait for him for so long and just accept the negligence that he subjected you to How could you let yourself down like that You should have gone on your own and become your own woman you should have become empowered rather than crawling back to the bastards that mistreated you Your actions made no sense Your emotions and love changed with the wind I blame your creator Tess I don t think he knew uite what he wanted when he wrote you He made a character who was a survivor with a will to keep trudging through life s shit but she kept going back to that shit again and again Rather than make you hopeless he should have had you learn from the evils of the world and become a woman who knew how to deal with it Then there s the ending of your story Tess Why Stonehenge Why did you run there of all places Why not go to the train station Why did you let yourself be led along by that prat Angel Clare one time AhhTess why did you waste your life The men you met were assholes your family were assholes too so why didn t you just get away from it all Your most tragic mistake Tess and your doom was not realising what was inside you Tess only if you realised only if the man who wrote you realised that women don t need to rely on men then the whole tragedy would have been avoided And I wouldn t be writing this letter to a fictional corpse Yours sincerelyA very dissatisfied reader
