Abstract:

Here is the authoritative text of Hardy's last novel with a critical introduction which discusses to what extent Jude's pessimism is Hardy's own, and to what extent it reflects the advanced intellectual sentiments of the time. Upon it's publication in 1985, this book was denounced as hostile to the institution of marriage and burned by the Bishop of Wakefield for its "insolence and indecency." It was finally acclaimed as a moral work, but oo late: for as Hardy wrote in his postscript in 1912, the experience had completely cured him of further interest in novel writing.
