Biography:

George Moore (1852-1933), the son of landed gentry in County Mayo, spent his youth in Paris as a dilettante artist and writer. Later he settled in London and came under the influence of the work of Emile Zola. This was to shape his entire life, and he was a prime mover in introducing the "naturalist" style of writing to English letters. On the outbreak of the Boer War, Moore returned to Ireland and there produced some of his best work on contemporary Irish life.
