Author Biography - Thomas Hardy

Tragedy haunts the works of Thomas Hardy (1840 1928), whose fiction abounds in star-crossed lovers and other characters thwarted by fate or their own shortcomings. Hardy's outspoken criticism of Victorian society excited such profound controversy that the author abandoned fiction and in the 20th century published only poetry."
