His failure to fulfill the opposite expectations of the two women he loves thwarts him in this ideal and points to his final tragedy. Concerned with the destructive conventions of marriage and the English class system, Jude the Obscure is a raging indictment of Victorian society. The censure attending its appearance was almost without precedent in the history of English literature. D.H. Lawrence detected 'a constant revelation ... a great background, vital and vivid ... This is the wonder of Hardy's novels, and gives them their beauty'"--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
