'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...
