    Jude The Obscure: Penguin English Library

    By: Thomas Hardy

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    With its frank and fearless depiction of sexual relationships, Hardy's last novel provoked outrage and was even burned in public when it was published in 1895. It tells the story of Jude Fawley, who longs to go to university but is excluded by his class and trapped into a foolish marriage. When he finds work as a stonemason in Christminster and falls in love with his cousin, the freethinking Sue Brideshead, they live together openly and as a result are shunned by society. For Jude, ever the outsider, the effects are devastating.
