The story of Jude Fawley, an impoverished stonemason who aspires to the ministry. Throughout his agonized existence, the cloistered halls and facades of Christminster, where Jude would study, sadistically invite him to rid himself of ignorance. His failure to fulfill the opposite expectations of the two women he loves and the violent deaths of his children thwart him in his ideal and point to his destruction. A raging indictment of Victorian society.
