Feminine Identities in Jude the Obscure


feminine Identities in Jude the Obscure

We may not always agree with Sue Bridehead's decisions, but no matter what we may think of her, we have to agree that she is a lady way ahead of her time. The second symbol is Christminster. Hardy is trying to tell us that we should not fall into the same predicament as Jude; we should not allow ourselves to run after religion as an escape to our problems because it will only lead to hardships.

Even though she may survive the end of the novel, she's no longer the Sue Bridehead we have come to know and Jude has come to loveand if that's not tragedy, we don't know what. Here we have Jude intending to commit adultery with Sue and we have Hardy comparing him to Jesus. From the beginning, Jude sees in Christminster and its university the image of an attainable ideal world. (By the way, when it comes to bad marriages, Hardy was no peach: his first wife Emma actually kept a diary about all of his flaws as the two of them grew further and further apart.). Christminster symbolizes a world in which Jude sees how remarkable the Church is, but it is a place that exists only in Judes imagination. It finally represents to him literally all that he has left in life. It is a successful symbol because it is capable of representing what it is supposed to and it does not call attention to itself as a literary device. These feelings of guilt caused Jude to move away from the Church and betray God, as he states, The Church is no more. Jude to visit her again. And here's where the social criticism comes in: Hardy clearly sees it as a problem that Sue isn't supposed to get a divorce, and once she does, that she isn't supposed to be happy again with another man outside the bonds of marriage. Sue takes on a life of her own in the novel, beyond the strict intentions of her author. His desire for this ideal vision involves a rejection of reality.
