With the 2012 success of the film, Albert Nobbs, George Moore has re-entered the public consciousness, and interest in his life and work has expanded beyond the confines of academics and lovers of literature. George Moore was all one would ask for in a man of letters and is a literary giant. An Irish Catholic absentee landlord self-educated within the Parisian cafe culture of the 1870s, Moore was friend to the Impressionists, disciple to Zola, preacher for literary naturalism, self-proclaimed messiah to the Irish revival, and revelatory satirist of those among whom he practiced his vocation.
