Esther Waters, an English story by George Moore( Book )

230 editions published between 1894 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 3,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Esther Waters (1894) was one of the first English novels to defeat Victorian moral censorship. George Moore's story of a mother's fight for the life of her illegitimate son won Mr Gladstone's approval and was admitted, unaltered, into those bastions of Victorian conformity, the circulating libraries. Esther Waters is forced to leave home and become a servant in a well-to-do household. Seduced in a moment of weakness she has to leave her position and the novel charts her piognant story of poverty and hardship: first the lying-in hospital, then service as a wet-nurse, and even the workhouse as she struggles to look after her child. Adapting the French literary practices of sexual frankness and social exploration to the British climate, Moore produced his masterpiece ... A landmark in puiblishing history, it is also one of the finest of naturalistic novels."--Page 4 of cover
