This volume in the New Casebook series examines and illustrates the ways in which Hardy criticism has been transformed by the growth of literary theory. Extracts from feminist, deconstructionist, Marxist and other contemporary readings of Jude the Obscure offer at once a range of discussions of the novel itself and a practical introduction to modes of theory-based interpretation. Boumelha's Introduction gives an overview of such contemporary developments in Hardy criticism.
