'If you are going to be an artist, you must be ashamed of nothing but to be ashamed.'

Welcome to the George Moore Association

Dedicated to the study of Moore's life and works

As a writer, Moore was a transitional, boundary-crossing figure

  • From the 19th to the 20th century

  • Across Ireland, France, and the UK

  • From naturalism to modernism

  • From the novel to precursors of 'personal nonfiction'

  • From sole authorship to collaborative forms of social authorship

  • From hetero to polyvalent sexualities

There's more, much more

to learn about George Moore...

Prof Fabienne Gaspari, (Universite de Paul & Pays de l’Adour),  valued member of the George Moore Association, gave a paper at a recent conference in Tours.  On the theme of Channel Crossings and Writings, the title of Fabienne’s paper was “An Irish man on the road: George Moore’s Travel Experiences”.  Good to know that GM is travelling well in France!

 The programme for the SOFEIR conference in Lille, 9-10 March is wide-ranging and impressive – but no sign of a Moore text there this year.  Perhaps GM will travel there next year.  However, a very important event in Lille will honour GMA trustee Dr Eamon Maher who has mentored students, encouraged academics and contributed an incalculable amount to Franco-Irish studies over decades.
