A fine copy with a little reinforcement to the rear hinge. AN EXCELLENT COPY WITH MANUSCRIPT MATERIAL INCLUDED. George Moore is largely regarded as the first major novelist in the realist style in English. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Émile Zola. His writings influenced James Joyce, according to the literary critic and biographer Richard Ellmann,and, although Moore's work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. The author's realism, particularly in its amorous portrayals, managed to get him banned or censored on a number of occasions. Because of his willingness to tackle such issues as prostitution, extramarital sex and lesbianism, Moore's novels were initially met with disapproval. However, as the public's taste for realist fiction grew, this subsided. This work is series of autobiographical sketches, in some of which the love-affairs of the author's early life are realistically set before the reader. Bookseller Inventory # 27713
