Critical Essays Hardy's Use of Point of View

The most noteworthy thing about Hardy's use of point of view is that it is conventional for his time. He uses a shifting third person point of view which is usually centered in Jude but sometimes is moved to one of the other main characters. Historically, then, Hardy makes no use of the development of point of view as a technique carried out by his contemporary Henry James.
