Moore, George


Born Feb. 24, 1852, in County Mayo, Ireland; died Jan. 21, 1933, in London. Irish writer.

The son of a landowner, Moore studied painting in London and Paris. His first novels, A Modem Lover (1883) and A Mummer’s Wife (1885), and the autobiographical novella Confessions of a Young Man (1888) are written in a naturalistic manner. The novels A Drama in Muslin (1886; Russian translation, 1887) and Esther Waters (1894; Russian translation, 1895) deal with social problems. The short-story collection The Untilled Field (1903), the novel The Lake (1905), and the autobiographical trilogy Hail and Farewell (1911–14) are about life in Ireland. Moore’s short stories show the influence of I. S. Turgenev, with whom Moore was acquainted.
