Thomas Hardy

Author Code: ETHX

Born: Jun. 2, 1840 - Upper Brockhampton, Dorchester, England

Died: Jan. 11, 1928 - Dorchester, Dorset, England

Hardy practiced architecture in his early days before turning to a career of writing. He published his first work of poetry in 1862 and his first novel, Desperate Remedies, in 1871. His very popular, Far From the Madding Crowd, was published in 1874 and gave him the success he needed to make writing his full-time career. Among his most famous works are The Return of the Native (1878), The Trumpet Major (1880), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), The Woodlanders (1887), Wessex Tales (1888), Tess of the D'Urbevilles (1891), The Well-Beloved (1892) and Jude the Obscure (1896). Between 1903 and 1908, Hardy published a three-volume epic drama of the Napoleonic Wars entitled The Dynasts. Hardy was also a poet of renown.
