What are some good books to read by these two authors? I've read Tess of D'Urbervilles and is reading The picture of Dorian Gray, now I just wanted to know what are some others from these authors is good to get.

Frances, your question is riveting, because if you're looking for Wilde novels, you're read them all. If you want to read his plays (which are excellent and still performed today), poetry, short stories, essays, you might go to http://wilde.astorialand.com/

He had a tragic life, and aside from Dorian Gray and his plays, is mostly remembered today for his biting social and literary criticism, mostly "quotes from Oscar Wilde" and that sort of thing. The Wikipedia article on him will give you an idea.

Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy is very good.
