George Moore was an Irish novelist, short story writer, and dramatist.  His writings influenced James Joyce, and although Moore’s work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist.  He worked with W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory to establish the Irish Literary Theatre.   He then became deeply involved in the Irish Literary Revival.
