9780393972788: Jude the Obscure (Second Edition) (Norton Critical Editions)

The text reprinted in this volume is based on Hardy’s final revision for the 1912 Wessex Edition and includes his Preface and Postscript.

The novel is fully annotated and is accompanied by Hardy’s map of Wessex and a plan of late Victorian Oxford (the Christminster of the novel).

The textual history of Jude the Obscure―including an account of the surviving manuscript showing Hardy’s major change of intention during its composition, of the pressure to bowdlerize the novel, and of the subsequent restoration and revisions―is traced in a series of extracts from Hardy’s writings as well as from those of his contemporaries and of modern scholars Richard Little Purdy, John Paterson, and Robert C. Slack.

Selections from Hardy’s poems, autobiography, letters, and journalistic writings provide a background to the novel.  Autobiographical elements and the social climate of the period in which Hardy lived and wrote are discussed by C. J. Weber and W. R. Rutland, and Hardy’s use of locale is explored in a section prepared specially for this edition.

"Contemporary Reception" provides a selection of reviews.  "Modern Criticism" is provided by Irving Howe, Arthur Mizener, A. Alvarez, J. I. M. Stewart, Harvey Curtis Webster, D. H. Lawrence, Albert J. Guerard, Robert Gittings, Frederick P. W. McDowell, and Emma Clifford.

A Selected Bibliography is included.

Book Description:

Thomas Hardy's last novel charts the life of Jude Fawley from his parochial childhood to his death in the collegiate city of Christminster, the centre of his intellectual dreams and their failure. Initially published as a much-abridged serial, the text first appeared in its full and present form in 1895.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
