Tess of the D’Urbervilles: Chapters 14-24

After a few months of working for the D’Urbervilles, Alec takes Tess for a ride in the woods known as The Chase.  In class yesterday, I realized I completely missed something.  While they were in the woods, Alec raped Tess.  So, I spoke up:

Professor Cadwallader later explained that no, it was just written about in a Victorian way, and I wouldn’t be able to miss references to it later.  And I didn’t.
