Tess of the dUrbervilles Some critics have said that fate conspires against Tess and that she is not responsible for the things which happen to her She herself says I am more sinned against than sinning Do you agree or disagree Support your answer with evidence from the text As a person who believes that many things are un-avoidable no matter how careful you are to avoid them I believe that Tesss life was tragically destroyed by the hand of fate It is obvious through the words and actions of Tess that she only wanted to have a calm normal life However it seems that she was chosen for whatever reason to be on the receiving end of continuous hardships From the very beginning of the novel Tess receives the short end of the stick in almost every scene She is one of the girls who doesnt get to dance with the strange young man before he returns to his brothers Although they exchange looks at each other he runs off into the night without a word spoken between them This is our first glimpse of Tess and even before we learn more about her we know that her family is not well off and that her father seems to be a bit of a drunk Next she is to a degree railroaded into going to claim kinship to the dUrbervilles OeWell as I killed the horse mother she said mournfully OeI suppose I ought to do something I dont mind going
