Über den Autor

Thomas Hardy (1840–1928) was an English novelist and poet, who is eminent for his contributions to the naturalist movement. His work often explores tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances, set amid the evocative landscape of Hardy's fictional Wessex, which is based on the rural area of South West England where he was born and spent much of his life. Hardy's rich descriptions and his sharp social critique stem from his early experiences and vocations; he trained as an architect before dedicating himself to writing full time. He wrote several notable novels including 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles', 'Far from the Madding Crowd', and 'The Mayor of Casterbridge', which have cemented his place in the canon of English literature. His novels are lauded for their profound psychological insight, their sensitive portrayal of women's struggles, and their deep sympathy for the lower classes. The 'Collected Works' of Thomas Hardy unite these seminal texts, reflecting a body of work characterized by its realism and the author's intricate depictions of the natural world. As a poet, Hardy's work ranged from lyrical to epic, but it always displayed his mastery over language and his ability to excavate emotional truths. Contemporary scholars continue to study Hardy's literature not only for its artistic merit but also for its social commentary and exploration of existential themes.
