9780141028897: Jude the Obscure (Pocket Penguin Classics)

Jude Fawley, the stonemason excluded not by his wits but by poverty from the world of Christminster privilege, finds fulfilment in his relationship with Sue Bridehead. Both have left earlier marriages. Ironically, when tragedy tests their union it is Sue, the modern emancipated woman, who proves unequal to the challenge. Hardy's fearless exploration of sexual and social relationships and his prophetic critique of marriage scandalised the late Victorian establishment and marked the end of his career as a novelist.

Review:

"Excellent text, appropriate aids (intro, notes), and an incredible price. This is an impressive bargain."--Robert Beckett, Southwest Missouri State University"Ingham's introduction, editing, and explanatory notes are unusually balanced, sound, and helpful in understanding this pivotal Victorian novel."--Frances Mayhew Rippy, Ball State University

From the Publisher:

The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as to read.

Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.
