Thomas Hardy is known for his unconventional portrayal of female characters. In Victorian literature, his women are surprisingly complex, sexual, and even "heroic." Jekel's study discusses the development of Hardy's heroines, contrasts them with typical Victorian feminine standards, and compares them to the women who Hardy knew in his personal life.
