The brook Kerith; a Syrian story by George Moore( Book )

"1916. Irish novelist, playwright, poet and critic, his epic The Brook Kerith begins: It was at the end of a summer evening, long after his usual bedtime, that Joseph, sitting on his grandmother's knee, heard her tell that Kish having lost his asses sent Saul, his son, to seek them in the land of the Benjamites and the land of Shalisha, whither they might have started. But they were not in these lands, Son, she continued, nor in Zulp, whither Saul went afterwards, and being then tired out with looking for them he said to the servant: we shall do well to forget the asses, lest my father should ask what has become of us."--Goodreads
Celibates by George Moore( Book )

88 editions published between 1895 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celibates consists of three stories - two of women and one of a man. Mildred Lawson and John Norton are celibates by nature. Agnes Lahens is a celibate from environment and circumstance. Each of the three is utterly different from the other, and yet all are alike in that they are the products of a modern civilization. Mildred and John are without that compulsive force which is known as the sexual passion. If they have it at all, it has been diluted by tradition and so-called culture into a mere sensation. Agnes's passion is an arrested one, so that what there is of it is easily diverted into an expression of religious aspiration

Evelyn Innes by George Moore( Book )

100 editions published between 1898 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr Innes, the widower of a famous opera singer who had lost her voice, and his twenty-year old daughter are living in Dulwich. Mr Innes is the organist at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in Southwark and Evelyn plays the viola da gamba and sings Renaissance songs at her father's concerts. Then there enters the figure of a wealthy baronet, Sir Owen Asher of Berkeley Square, a music lover, but a sensualist who has had many mistresses. Charmed by Evelyn's beauty and her singing talent, he seduces her and whisks her off to Paris where she is trained as an opera singer and in a matter of a few years becomes an international diva. Established as Sir Owen's mistress, she has a house in Park Lane, but marriage is not on the baronet's mind. Evelyn is also attracted to a man who is almost Sir Owen's opposite, the Irish composer Ulick Dean, a man of great spiritual sensibility and full of the 'Celtic Twilight'. A tryst at the Dulwich Picture Gallery is charmingly described and their relationship is consummated during an interval of a performance of Tristan and Isolde in which Evelyn is taking the female title role. Ulick Dean is a clearly recognisable portrait of Moore's friend, the poet WB Yeats. Dean even shares Yeats's interest in William Blake and in the theosophy of Madame Blavatsky, briefly an Upper Norwood resident. Yeats had a love affair with an actress, Olivia Shakespeare, and they visited the Dulwich Picture Gallery together. He had also been a visitor to the Dolmetsch household in Rosendale Road
