Thomas Hardy (1840 – 1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist, in the tradition of George Eliot, he was also influenced both in his novels and poetry by Romanticism, especially by William Wordsworth. Charles Dickens is another important influence on Thomas Hardy. Like Dickens, he was also highly critical of much in Victorian society, though Hardy focused more on a declining rural society.

One of my favorite authors, Thomas Hardy. Not only was he an incredible author with a gift for creating engrossing stories, he was also a man who challenged social norms, and stubbornly refused to be silenced.
