This edition includes the following editor's introduction: “Confessions of a Young Man,” the exciting memoirs of George Moore, a key precursor of naturalism and modernity
Originally published in 1886, “Confessions of a Young Man” is a memoir by 30-year old Irish novelist George Moore who spent about 15 years in his teens and 20s in Paris and later London as a struggling artist.
“Confessions of a Young Man” is an unusually frank account, by the standards of the time, of an Irish expatriate's unconventional life as a bohemian artist in Paris and London during the "fin-de-siècle." This work is notable as being one of the first English writings which named important emerging French Impressionists; for its literary criticism; and depictions of bohemian life in Paris during the 1870s and 1880s.
