Physical description; 510 p. Includes glossary. "First published 1896. Published in the Penguin English Library 1978." 1984 reprint. Series; Penguin English library. Summary; Novel tracing Jude Fawley's life from his aspirations of intellectual freedom to his early death. Review: I was a teenager when I read this book. There was something about Hardy's harsh, fatalistic world that appealed to me then. Despite, or maybe because of, the pessimism, I think I found it rather romantic and I read everything of his that I could lay my hands on. Then I got to Jude. And Jude was just so sad, so unfair, so much about fate shafting a good man in all kinds of ways, that I overdosed on Hardy and could never read him again. But I still remember sitting on my bed and crying my heart out at the injustice of it all. I cried so much my mother came upstairs to check I was all right. I think she was worried about a teenage excess of emotion. Maybe that was what I liked about Hardy all along: you can shamelessly feel as you read him. (Kirkus UK) Subjects; General & literary fiction ; Classic fiction. FICTION / Classics. Fiction in English.

Reseña del editor:
Novel tracing Jude Fawley's life from his aspirations of intellectual freedom to his early death.
Biografía del autor:
Thomas Hardy was born in Dorset in 1840 and became an apprentice architect at the age of sixteen. He spent his twenties in London, where he wrote his first poems. In 1867 Hardy returned to his native Dorset, whose rugged landscape was a great source of inspiration for his writing. Between 1871 and 1897 he wrote fourteen novels, including Tess of the D'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure. This final work was received savagely; thereafter Hardy turned away from novels and spent the last thirty year of his life focusing on poetry. He died in 1928.
