    One thought on “Confessions of a Young Man”

    1. Moore s confessions are aesthetic If there s , you ll have a soul struggling to rid itself of Victorian morality Of landed gentry, Moore moved fr Ireland to Paris in his 20s hoping to be a painter He immersed himself in Degas, Manet and discussed Gautier, Baudelaire at his Montmartre haunt until dawn This memoir was finished in his early 30s after he decided to become a writer He first tried journalism which he found stifling I longed to give a personal shape to something and this could not be a [...]

    2. George Moore writes of a man himself in his twenties, searching for his passion First, its art, then realizing it wouldn t work for him, he switches to reading and writing Its a very honest book, from the insight of a privileged young man in a different time I enjoyed his opinions and critiques of the authors he s read and how they changed throughout his twenties I gave it three stars only because he was so arrogant and unlikeable.

    3. Lively report from early 20th c Paris London.hilites 39why could i not live without an ever present and acute consciousness of life why could i not love, forgetful of the ticking of the clock in the perfumed silence of the chamber 49Degas innovations75miniature of a beauty of 30 He dreams of Pleasure and he is offered Duty.94Manet Degas in a cafe105Whistler the least Impressionistic106ach of Milletways the same thing, the same peasant, the same sabot, the same sentiment.109Oh, for excess, for cr [...]

    4. Moore s false modesty disintegrates as the narrative progresses, leaving the reader with an insightful, if somewhat egoistic, read about art and life in Paris circa the late 19th century Some writerly trivia In his day George Moore regarded Joyce, his younger compatriot, with distaste Take this Irishman Joyce, a sort of Zola gone to seed Someone recently sent me a copy of Ulysses I was told I must read it, how can one plow through such stuff Joyce, Joyce, why he s nobody from the Dublin docks no [...]

    5. roundup from 3.5 stars, kind of half memoir and half musings on art, culture etc never read any of moore s other stuff so i really can t comment on his body of work here aside from this jumps around to subjects rather frequently, the most interesting are his thoughts on literature, which includes the highest praise of balzac his personal life is less interesting as he comes across as a rich, arrogant dick, but i guess almost any artist from 19c and before had to have that persona

    6. For its era 1900s turn of the century this narrative offers insight to lifestyles of gay dandies and man about town a century ago, told through the POV of a character who believes himself a literary phenomenon Snoozed through some passages about protagonist s hero worship of close friend.
