Important literary elements in Tess of the D'Urbervilles are the pathetic fallacy, synesthesia, tragic irony, and omniscient narrative. A good starting point is examining the way Hardy's use of the omniscient point of view portrays Tess as a helpless victim of destiny, doomed to a tragic fate. Like Wessex, Tess is despoiled by the inevitable forces of history and progress.
