Supporting literature

Some Victorian fiction such as Thomas Hardy would be a good idea as it will boost awareness of Victorian context. Start with Far From the Madding Crowd or The Mayor of Casterbridge. Any Dickens (perhaps Bleak House or Hard Times) or Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell would be an excellent choice as well. All of these are freely available online.
