    But his dreams were as gigantic as his surroundings were small I realize wistfully that I cannot revisit all books I read and loved a long time ago Oh, how I regret not having an endless existence to go back and revisit my most precious memories However, I have so many new celebrated novels yet to explore I read Jude the Obscure when I was in college, I was so young but used to read whenever I did not have class or did not have to study If I remember correctly, I discovered it in an English Literature class I was exposed to marvels through it that are never far away Yes, I loved Thomas Hardy s appealing protagonist I liked that he wanted to advance himself, but no effort would be enough for him to rise above his social status in those times He is continually knocked out in his aspirations His love life is no successful, as he seems to choose unsuitable women People go on marrying because they can t resist natural forces, although many of them may know perfectly well that they are possibly buying a month s pleasure with a life s discomfort Thus, Jude represents almost every men of his time in England or maybe many other places From the title we understand that he is an obscure man for his choices make no sense If I remember correctly, all along we are reminded of what could have been Nothing could be melancholic Despite my lack of maturity at the time I read it and the gloom that involves the novel, a...

    Thomas Hardy ended his brilliant career writing novels, with this book, Jude the Obscure , because of the adverse reaction in Victorian England , this was thought unseemly, immoral, not a decent product , you didn t parade such filth to the public, but he did, almost fifty years too early, yet liking poetry , it was not a hard decision for him to stop, back to his first love, making exquisite poems In the tail end of the 19th century two intelligent , but undisciplined, rather immature first cousins, meet, and fall in love, Jude Fawley and pretty, independent, Sue Bridehead, Jude s great ambition is to better himself, attend the university at Christminister, Oxford studying alone , friendless, for ten long years, Latin, Greek and ancient classical literature, in the small country village of impoverished Marygreen, the orphan living with an unsympathetic, cold , great aunt, Drusilla, the spinster, she warns him about the many bad marriages in the family, not caring, but instead seeing the far distant glorious lights of the fabled city, the poor boy has the gift, but lacks money or family connections, in a class conscious society, he wouldn t be welcomed at schoolBefore encountering Sue, her mother dead and estranged from the father, Jude makes a tragic error in judgement , marrying the scheming, coars...

    3.5 5To read of Tess or Jude I was completely undecided, so took the action of a coin toss to decide for me.Problem, had not a penny in my pocket, so whisked out a visa card and launched it across the room.Frontside up TessBackside up JudeJude it was then Don t worry Tess, you will have your day He might have won my card toss but there is no winning in Hardy s final novel A novel of such bleak and devastating intensity it s little wonder he finally called it a day Stirring up a feeling of failure and disappointment in life, the protagonist Jude Fawley is a scholarly chap who aspires from an early age to study in the university town of Christminster, situated in Hardy s fictional county of Wessex, become a clergyman, and distinguish himself in the world.But two women would enter his life, Arabella and cousin Sue, to ruin everything..His tragic story moved me in such a way that was almost unbearable, too painful to comprehend, the light at the end of the tunnel didn t even exist Jude is brought up by his old Aunt and is devoted to a local schoolmaster, Phillotson, and dreams of following in his footsteps after he moves to the Oxford lik...

    Finally read it This one was so often interrupted and left for dead I guess it was better to keep straining the eyes and pausing after glorious upon glorious sentence for better understanding Yeah he s one of those authors often times associated with Greatness, with good reason The Return of the Native is another interrupted and altogether discarded novel which had incredible prospects This one rollercoasters from Dickensian beginnings Jude the pauper and dreamer to omnipresent tragedy yes Shakespearean modern, too Jude is an Everyman cursed by an even larger figure the pre feminist minx In the case of Jude, being associated to a woman in a then bizarre two in one ness is The Fatal Flaw And not just to any woman Sue Bridehead, a Bovary ian counterpart, is ambivalent and mean and unromantic Of course she will singlehandedly betray Jude s affections, break his heart She is a sad drama queen, every woman in this novel is an antagonist There is a downfall to this modest Everyman, sure, and though it is propagated by his unfortunate mistake of falling for a BITCH, there are outside influences ...

    Casi ten a miedo de leer Jude porque me hab an vendido esta historia como un DRAMA SIN FIN, y no s si es que me he hecho ya al estilo Hardy, pero no me ha parecido para tanto Es cierto que resulta impactante por una serie de acontecimientos del desenlace pero no me gustar a quedarme solo con eso Me ha parecido una novela muy cr tica con la sociedad victoriana en much simos aspectos, con personajes muy complejos encerrados en un...

    God had created woman for the sole purpose of tempting and testing man One must not approach her without defensive precautions and fear of possible snares She was, indeed, just like a snare, with her lips open and her arms stretched out to man Guy de Maupassant, Clair de Lune.I wonder who the real tragic protagonist in Hardy s tale of doomed love and transcendental disillusion is What seems evident according to the incriminating behavior of the female characters in the story is that women are not to be trusted for their either manipulative or gullible nature Many might easily consider Sue Bridehead, Jude s alma mater, the major villain of this wretched story A perverse seductress full of inessential stratagems and provocative pouts, whose tribulations ruin the lives of two good hearted men, tantalizing them with sharp mind and incorporeal beauty.One can throw stones at this treacherous creature based on false social embodiments of love and despise her impetuous rebellion or choose to dig deeper and endure acute spiritual turmoil in an inner battle of wills between abstract ideology and constrained reality.One can focus on Sue s ellusive actions and self centered individualism or see her as a token of the transition between the new and the old mental frame of the semi liberated femal...
