Did You Know

Tess of the d'Urbervilles is considered one of the most powerful social commentaries of English society, yet Hardy seldom directly mentions or questions public morality in the novel.

Hardy wrote in 1891 that he did not intend for the novel to be didactic (to have a moral). And in 1912 he wrote that the novel would probably not have been published if it had been written then.
