Esther Waters by George Moore( Book )

201 editions published between 1894 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Esther Waters (1894) was one of the first English novels to defeat Victorian moral censorship. George Moore's story of a mother's fight for the life of her illegitimate son won Mr Gladstone's approval and was admitted, unaltered, into those bastions of Victorian conformity, the circulating libraries. Esther Waters is forced to leave home and become a servant in a well-to-do household. Seduced in a moment of weakness she has to leave her position and the novel charts her piognant story of poverty and hardship: first the lying-in hospital, then service as a wet-nurse, and even the workhouse as she struggles to look after her child. Adapting the French literary practices of sexual frankness and social exploration to the British climate, Moore produced his masterpiece ... A landmark in puiblishing history, it is also one of the finest of naturalistic novels."--Page 4 of cover

Evelyn Innes by George Moore( Book )

100 editions published between 1898 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr Innes, the widower of a famous opera singer who had lost her voice, and his twenty-year old daughter are living in Dulwich. Mr Innes is the organist at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in Southwark and Evelyn plays the viola da gamba and sings Renaissance songs at her father's concerts. Then there enters the figure of a wealthy baronet, Sir Owen Asher of Berkeley Square, a music lover, but a sensualist who has had many mistresses. Charmed by Evelyn's beauty and her singing talent, he seduces her and whisks her off to Paris where she is trained as an opera singer and in a matter of a few years becomes an international diva. Established as Sir Owen's mistress, she has a house in Park Lane, but marriage is not on the baronet's mind. Evelyn is also attracted to a man who is almost Sir Owen's opposite, the Irish composer Ulick Dean, a man of great spiritual sensibility and full of the 'Celtic Twilight'. A tryst at the Dulwich Picture Gallery is charmingly described and their relationship is consummated during an interval of a performance of Tristan and Isolde in which Evelyn is taking the female title role. Ulick Dean is a clearly recognisable portrait of Moore's friend, the poet WB Yeats. Dean even shares Yeats's interest in William Blake and in the theosophy of Madame Blavatsky, briefly an Upper Norwood resident. Yeats had a love affair with an actress, Olivia Shakespeare, and they visited the Dulwich Picture Gallery together. He had also been a visitor to the Dolmetsch household in Rosendale Road

Celibates by George Moore( Book )

43 editions published between 1895 and 2011 in English and German and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celibates consists of three stories - two of women and one of a man. Mildred Lawson and John Norton are celibates by nature. Agnes Lahens is a celibate from environment and circumstance. Each of the three is utterly different from the other, and yet all are alike in that they are the products of a modern civilization. Mildred and John are without that compulsive force which is known as the sexual passion. If they have it at all, it has been diluted by tradition and so-called culture into a mere sensation. Agnes's passion is an arrested one, so that what there is of it is easily diverted into an expression of religious aspiration

This novel (1888) tells the story of three spoiled daughters who are a great source of grief and distress to their parents. Moore later called the book the worst book he'd ever written, and it was omitted from the lists of his acknowledged works. Twenty-five years later, however, at the urging of friends with whom the book found favor, Moore revisited the work, and deemed it more engaging than he'd remembered
