I am writing an essay for English lit and should really start reading books to compare to Tess but have no idea what ones will link to any themes.

Any ideas will be a help 😊

I would suggest anything by Ipsen/Bronte. The poem 'the ruined maid' is also great for comparison x

At school at the moment, one of our coursework options was to compare Tess and Far From the Madding Crowd by Hardy as well if that helps? As they are both written by the same author there are very similar themes so that could be useful!

George Eliot, Mill on the Floss (1860)
George Eliot, Middlemarch (1871)
John Milton, Paradise Lost (1667)
Annie Proulx, Brokeback Mountain (1997)
