Thomas Hardy (1840 - 1928)
Despite my distaste for Naturalism, I include Hardy as one of the worthy Victorian writers.

"[W]ar makes rattling good history; but Peace is poor reading."
"A Plot, or Tragedy, should arise from the gradual closing in of a situation that comes of ordinary human passions, prejudices, and ambitions, by reason of the characters taking no trouble to ward off the disastrous events produced by the said passions, prejudices, and ambitions."
