About Thomas Hardy
Thomas Hardy (1849-1928) is a masterful storyteller with his beautiful but harsh portrayal of rural Wessex and his vivid character depictions. Never shy of controversy, Hardy subtitled Tess of the D'Urbervilles 'A Pure Woman', and the haunting, tragic figure of Tess was the character who meant most to him.
