Jude the Obscure Thomas Hardy

by Penny Boumelha

Part of the New Casebooks Series

Jude the Obscure Thomas Hardy Synopsis

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.

Jude the Obscure Thomas Hardy Press Reviews

'I am a fervent admirer of these volumes because they provide an excellent introductory essay that acts as a guide to the other essays and the collection covers several aspects of the novel which is ideal for 'A' Level students and undergraduates. This volume has depth and breadth; the writing lucid.' - Vivian Thomas, University of Birmingham
