schema:reviewBody""Jude the Obscure has been seen as a powerful and controversial novel from its first publication in 1895 to the present. At different times, it has been seen as an affront to sexual morality, a radical assault on British social institutions, a pioneering work of feminism and a fiercely committed socialist polemic. Its unsettling parable of defeated rebellion continues to draw the attention of both readers and critics. But it readers have always shared a sense that the novel is challenging, critical responses to the text have sharply diverged over time. This collection brings together some of the most interesting and challenging studies of Jude the Obscure of the last fifteen years, combining essays by influential contemporary Hardy scholars with exciting new work by emerging critics."--Jacket."
