Richmond Roy, or Roy Richmond, is the ne'er-do-well son of an actress and an unnamed member of the royal family. He has taken up the trade of singing teacher, and in this capacity is employed by Squire Beltham, one of whose two daughters he seduces and elopes with. Having given birth to Harry Richmond the daughter dies. Squire Beltham and his other daughter, Dorothy, obtain custody of Harry after a prolonged struggle with Roy. Harry runs away from school and ends up in Germany, where he happens upon his father, now living at the courts of various German princes, with intervals in debtors' prisons. Harry falls in love with Princess Ottilia, but he is once more returned to the care of his grandfather, who promises to make Harry heir to his fortune of £20,000 a year if he will marry local girl Janet Ilchester. Harry will have none of this, and goes back to the Continent to pursue his princess, only to find that she has married a German prince. Since Janet is now engaged to an English marquess, and Squire Beltham has left his grandson a measly £3000, Harry seems to have got the worst of both worlds. Happily, Janet has second thoughts about the marquess and marries Harry instead. The story ends with a disastrous fire, in which Roy dies while trying to save Dorothy Beltham's life
Diana of the Crossways by George Meredith( Book )

360 editions published between 1885 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,966 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 [Victorian feminist] 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, [which he treats sympathetically]. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
An essay on comedy and the uses of the comic spirit by George Meredith( Book )

110 editions published between 1877 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,826 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
