George Meredith (1828-1909) abandoned the legal profession for journalism and poetry after marrying Mary Ellen Nicolls, a widowed daughter of Thomas Love Peacock. After his wife ran off with the English Pre-Raphaelite painter Henry Wallis, Mereditch's collection of sonnets entitled "Modern Love" (1862) and his first major novel, "The Ordeal of Richard Feverel," came of this experience.

About the Author:

George Meredith 1828–1909, English novelist and poet. One of the great English novelists, Meredith wrote complex, often comic yet highly cerebral works that contain striking psychological character studies.

Review:

Third novel by George Meredith, published in 1859. It is typical of his best work, full of allusion and metaphor, lyrical prose and witty dialogue, with a deep exploration of the psychology of motive and rationalization. The novel's subject is the relationship between a cruelly manipulative father and a son who loves a girl of a lower social class. Both men are self-deluded and proud, and the story's ending is tragic. When it was first published, some readers considered the novel prurient and, as a result, it was banned by the leading lending libraries. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
