Marxist critiques focus on the class dynamics that are captured in a literary work. In particular, they would argue that any author is either consciously or unconsciously reflecting a class orientation and therefore that author provides insight into the tensions between classes or the social contradictions that make up the society written about. Given this Marxist view of literature, consider the following question: Demonstrate how Thomas Hardy presents the increasingly hostile conditions of labor for the rural working class as a function of an exploitative capitalist economy. That is, show how Tess’s situation, and all of the agrarian working poor, is caught up in the capitalist social relations of the day in particularly harmful and exploitative ways. PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED ASSIGNMENT SHEET AND RUBRIC. MUST USE FIVE SECONDARY SOURCES AND SEVEN PRIMARY SOURCE QUOTATIONS (I.E. QUOTES FROM TESS OF THE D’URBERVILLES).
