Jacqueline Edmondson - Professor of Education, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Jude the Obscure

Author: Thomas Hardy

Book Description:

I first read this book when I was an undergraduate student. It challenged me to think deeply about education, social class, and societal norms related to religion, marriage, and family. The book had a profound effect on me, helping me to realize the need to critically question the world around me. I have read it multiple times over the years.
