About the book:

In 1895 Hardys final novel, the great tale of Jude the Obscure, sent shock waves of indignation rolling across Victorian England. Hardy had dared to write frankly about sexuality and to indict the institutions of marriage, education, and religion. But he had, in fact, created a deeply moral work. The stonemason Jude Fawley is a dreamer; his is a tragedy of unfulfilled aims. With his tantalizing cousin Sue Bridehead, the last and most extraordinary of Hardys heroines, Jude takes on the worldand discovers, tragically, its brutal indifference.

The most powerful expression of Hardys philosophy, and a profound exploration of mans essential loneliness, Jude the Obscure is a great and beautiful book. His style touches sublimity. T. S. Eliot
