Moore, Edward

Moore, Edward,

1712–57, English dramatist. He wrote two comedies in the sentimental tradition, The Foundling (1748) and Gil Blas (1751), but his reputation as a dramatist rests primarily on his prose tragedy The Gamester (1753).

Moore, Edward

 

Born Mar. 22, 1712, in Abingdon, Berkshire; died Mar. 1, 1757, in London. English writer.

Moore lived and died in poverty. From 1753 to 1756 he was the editor of the newspaper The World. His Fables for the Female Sex (1744) brought him literary recognition. His comedies The Foundling (1748) and Gil Bias (1751) and his tragedy The Gamester (1753) are striking examples of the petit bourgeois drama. In 1773, The Gamester was translated into Russian from French; the Russian translation was entitled Beverley (after the name of the hero) and enjoyed popularity.
