Abstract

This article contends that the final two novels of Thomas Hardy, "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" and "Jude the Obscure," are subject to a variety of different readings. Both novels appear to have affiliations to a range of literary genres and modes, most of which are eschewed by their adaptations. The work of Hardy was considered to suffer from a variety of faults, including his attraction to melodrama and his reliance on coincidence.
