Meet the Author


George Meredith (1828 –1909) was a English novelist and poet. His early novel The Ordeal of Richard Feverel (1859) met with critical disapproval, but he had success with The Egoist (1879), a novel which combined comedy and psychology for the purposes of witty social criticism. The subjection of women, was a recurrent theme in his work and central in his most successful novel, Diana of the Crossways (1885). Meredith’s fifty-sonnet sequence about a loveless marriage, Modern Love (1862) was acclaimed for its candor about married life and for its extension of the sonnet form—each sonnet containing sixteen lines.
