Jude the obscure, Thomas Hardy by Thomas Hardy( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 303 libraries worldwide
"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

Set in the secluded forest community of Little Hintock, Thomas Hardy's The Woodlanders inextricably links the dramatic English landscape with the story of a woman caught between two rivals of radically different social statures. Grace Melbury is promised to her longtime companion, Giles Winterborne, a local woodlander and a gentle, steadfast man. When her socially motivated father pressures her to wed the ambitious doctor Edred Fitzpiers, Grace's loyalties shift -- and her decision leads to tumultuous consequences. With its explorations of class and gender, lust and betrayal, The Woodlanders is one of Hardy's most vivid and powerful works
