Jude the Obscure

By Thomas Hardy

Ultra-Condensed by Samuel Stoddard and David J. Parker

Sue, we love each other.
Yes, Jude, but we mustn't admit it until it's too late.
(Jude and Sue get married to the WRONG people. Then they FIND each other and have an AFFAIR.)

Reprobates! Shoo! Shoo!
(Jude and Sue are TORN APART by the gruesome events and DEATH brought about by the PRESSURES of society's EVIL MORAL CONVENTIONS, because in a work of LITERATURE society is always BAD, and it is IMPOSSIBLE for all the characters to make it through ALIVE.)
