Outros nomes: Georgie Moore

George Augustus Moore foi um romancista, contista, poeta, crítico de arte, memorialista e dramaturgo irlandês. Moore veio de uma família católica romana, dona de terras, que vivia em Moore Hall, em Carra, Condado de Mayo. Originalmente, Moore queria ser um pintor, e estudou arte em Paris durante a década de 1870. Lá, tornou-se amigo de muitos dos principais artistas franceses da época.Como autor naturalista, ele foi um dos primeiros escritores de língua inglesa a absorver as técnicas do realismo francês, tendo sido influenciado particularmente pelas obras de Émile Zola. De acordo com o crítico literário e biógrafo Richard Ellmann, seus trabalhos influenciaram James Joyce e, embora a obra de Moore seja por vezes vista como secundária em relação às literaturas irlandesa e britânica, ele é frequentemente citado como o primeiro grande romancista moderno irlandês.

Citações George Moore

„I will admit that an artist may be great and limited; by one word he may light up an abyss of soul; but there must be this one magical and unique word.“

—  George Moore (novelist)

Contexto: I will admit that an artist may be great and limited; by one word he may light up an abyss of soul; but there must be this one magical and unique word. Shakespeare gives us the word, Balzac, sometimes, after pages of vain striving, gives us the word, Tourgueneff gives it with miraculous certainty; but Henry James, no; a hundred times he flutters about it; his whole book is one long flutter near to the one magical and unique word, but the word is not spoken; and for want of the word his characters are never resolved out of the haze of nebulae. You are on a bowing acquaintance with them; they pass you in the street, they stop and speak to you, you know how they are dressed, you watch the colour of their eyes.

„A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.“

—  George Moore (novelist)
