On the Tragic Image of Sophy in The Son’s Veto
I. Introduction
Thomas Hardy is one of the most important realism novelist and poet in England. He critiqued certain social constraints that hindered the lives of those living in the 19th century and was considered as a Victorian Realist writer. Hardy examined the social constraints that are part of the Victorian status quo, suggesting these rules hindered the lives of all involved and ultimately led to unhappiness. His latter works bore a lot of elements of tragic tint, most of his characters’ ideal and aspirations were all end with tragedy. The protagonist of The Son’s Veto Sophy was a typical example of this point.
The Son’s Veto is a life story of a maiden named Sophy as a servant in a priest family. Sophy became a lame person because of looking after the priest. The priest got married with her out of sympathy. However, Sophy was not accepted by the upper class in such a society with a rigid social stratum. What’s disappointed her most was that her son also looked down upon her low origin and lack of knowledge. Sophy wanted to remarry to her first love Sam, which received her son’s resolute opposition, because he thought that it would ruin his reputation and degrade him in the eyes of all the gentlemen of England. He even made her mother swear that she would not wed Sam without his consent. At last, Sophy died in depression. 《儿子的否决权》中索菲悲剧形象分析:http://www.lwfree.cn/yingyu/20180401/12212.html
