George Moore Quote
George Moore Travel Quote: A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.
George Augustus Moore was born in Ballyglass, County Mayo, the Republic of Ireland on February 24, 1852, and died on January 21, 1933. George Moore was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist.
Moore came from a distinguished Catholic family of Irish landholders. When he was 21, he left for Paris to pursue painting. After deciding he had no talent for painting, he returned to London to write. Here he wrote his first two novels during 1883 – 1885.
He was amongst the first English language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists. His first novels, A Modern Lover and A Mummer’s Wife introduced a new note of French Naturalism into the English scene.
He moved back to Ireland due to his loathing of the South African War, and partly due to the renaissance of Irish literacy. He continued to write and also produced at the Abbey Theatre.
George Augustus has written many books including The Lake, A Drama in Muslin, Esther Waters and A Mere Accident.
