Scholarship on Irish writer George Moore (1852-1933) has gained momentum in recent years, and this book arose from the second international George Moore conference held at the U. of Lille, France, March 2007. "Across borders" in the title refers to the unifying theme of the conference and the 17 contributions: Moore's extraordinary eclecticism spanning, for example, naturalism, Impressionism, Paterian aesthetics, literary Wagnerism, decadence and the avant-garde, and New Woman culture. Editors Huguet (Victorian studies, U. of Lille) and Dabrigeon-Garcier (emeritus, Anglo-Irish literature, U. of Lille) point out in the introductory essay that addressing networks of connections across disciplines and genres is a prevailing direction in Victorian studies as a whole.
