Tess of the DUrbervilles
Thomas Hardy
Contributed by Harvey Landy
Chapter 22

The next morning, Mr. Crick is upset that one of his customers has complained that the butter has a foul taste owing to the cows eating garlic. He rounds up the workers so they can canvass the fields and remove the troublesome plants. The process is arduous, like finding a needle in a haystack, but they continue their search. Angel walks purposely next to Tess, but remembering her vow, Tess immediately tries to draw Angel to the sight of Izzy and Retty, praising their beauty. From then on, she tries not to be alone with Angel, while giving the other three girls every chance. Tess, however, seeing Angel’s endeavors not to spite any of the girls, grows even more fond of him, not knowing that such tenderness is possible in men.
