    Jude the Obscure

  1. Author: Hardy, Thomas
    Title: Jude the Obscure
    Date: 1895
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "I admire Thomas Hardy; I admire the lofty conception of Tess of the d'Urbervilles, the finished execution of A Pair of Blue Eyes, the beautiful simplicity of Far from the Madding Crowd. But for Hearts Insurgent I have no forgiveness." Hearts Insurgent was titled The Simpletons when the first installment appeared; Cather liked it no better when it appeared in book form as Jude the Obscure (see her Nebraska State Journal piece of 2/22/1896).
