Most widely held works by George Meredith
The egoist, a comedy in narrative by George Meredith( Book )

348 editions published between 1879 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 3,585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Egoist, his comic masterpiece, George Meredith takes the traditional marriage plot of English domestic fiction and turns it on its head. The novel describes the repeated and disastrous courtships of Sir Willoughby Patterne, the egoist of the title. Three women become engaged to Sir Willoughby, but, despite his aristocratic arrogance and the manipulative power of his wealth, each is finally able to see him more clearly than he sees himself. The introduction to this edition provides context for the novel from Meredith's own life, his theory of comedy, and his understanding of Darwinian thought. The appendices include reviews, other writing on comedy, and historical documents on women, sexual politics, and the theory of evolution."--Publisher's website
Diana of the Crossways by George Meredith( Book )

345 editions published between 1885 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 2,941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diana of the Crossways examines the unhappy marriage of the title character Diana Warwick and is loosely based on events in the life of Caroline Norton (playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan's granddaughter), who was suspected of revealing an important political secret that she had acquired from her lover. Although Meredith was forced to attach a disclaimer to the novel, his story is less about political scandal than about his protagonist's inner life and motives. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

An essay on comedy and the uses of the comic spirit by George Meredith( Book )

137 editions published between 1877 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Essay on Comedy and the Uses of the Comic Spirit is the most extensive work on the nineteenth century comic genre. It was initially presented as Meredith's first and only public lecture in London in 1877, and published separately as a book in 1897. In it, Meredith defines comedy as a "humour of the mind," not prevalent in the British society of his day, which he saw as fraught with "Unreason and Sentimentalism." The work had a strong influence on writers such as Oscar Wilde and Virginia Woolf, and is remarkable for discussing comedy within the context of the status of women and as a means for their advancement
