English Literature NEA help

I need help with finding a pre 1900 book that I can use that has the theme of forbidden love due to their class differences or to do with the theme of nostalgia.
i haven't read all of these, so some may not work as well, but some starting ideas

forbidden love due to class:

david copperfield
jane eyre
jane austen books e.g. pride and prejudice, sense and sensibility, or emma could work (especially the character harriet)
shakespeare plays e.g. othello, the merchant of venice (characters jessica, porshia), and i'm sure there are other ones
i think maybe great expectations?
the importance of being earnest (oscar wilde)
