Jude the Obscure (Everyman's Library)

by

Jude the Obscure (Everyman's Library) Cover

 

Staff Pick

A masterpiece of Victorian tragedy, Jude is tortured, miserable and doomed. But, this beautiful novel is profoundly moving. The story is poignant and heart-wrenching, and the language is utterly gorgeous. Thomas Hardy is a peerless genius. Truly, absolutely, the best book I have ever read — you will cry!

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Soon to be a motion picture from Channel Four Films, starring Rufus Sewell, Polly Walker, Tony Haygarth, and Emily Woof.

"The Woodlanders" was Thomas Hardy's own favorite among his novels, and no other book of his more fully represents the many sides of his genius. This portrait of five people in an English village who are tangled in a drama of passion, betrayal, poverty, and pride of place richly demonstrates all of Hardy's distinguishing qualities — intimacy with rural England, his feeling for nature, his frankness about physical desire, and his gift for rendering, in the most specific way, the mystery at the heart of things.

Synopsis:

Now a major Motion Picture. In this story of the passionate, gifted Jude Fawley, baffled in his desire for learning and distinction by his entanglements with the two women in his life--Hardy achieved the kind of enigmatic force that we associate with the finest of the Greek tragedies.
