Five of the best books on the life and work of Thomas Hardy

At the Telegraph Christopher Nicholson recommended five books that illuminate the life and work of Thomas Hardy, including:
Hardy’s tragic masterpiece, Tess of the D’Urbervilles (1891), is the haunting story of a vulnerable young village woman. Highly critical of 19th-century morals, it is also wonderfully exuberant in its descriptions of the English countryside.
