Summary:George Augustus Moore (1852-1933) was an Irish novelist, short story
writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. His first book, a
collection of poems called The Flowers of Passion, had appeared in
1878 and a second collection, Pagan Poems, followed in 1881. His
first novel, A Modern Lover (1883), was banned in England because of
its, for the times, explicit portrayal of the amorous pursuits of its
hero. His next book, A Mummer's Wife (1885) is widely recognized as
the first major novel in the realist style in the English language.
Other realist novels by Moore from this period include Esther Waters
(1894), the story of an unmarried housemaid who becomes pregnant and
is abandoned by her footman lover, and A Drama in Muslin (1886), a
satiric story of the marriage trade in Anglo-Irish society. His 1887
novel A Mere Accident is an attempt to merge his symbolist and
realist influences. He also published a collection of short stories:
Celibates (1895). In 1913, he traveled to Jerusalem to research
background for his novel The Brook Kerith: A Syrian Story (1916).
