George Meredith was born in Portsmouth on 12 February 1828. He received his education at St Paul's School, Southsea and at the Moravian School at Neuwied on the Rhine, 1842-1844. Meredith returned to England in 1844, where he was articled to a solicitor in London, under whose encouragement Meredith began to write poetry. He contributed to Chambers Edinburgh Journal . In 1860 Meredith became a reader for the publishing company, Chapman and Hall. During his life he wrote poetry, seven novels and contributed essays to periodicals. After 1895 Meredith stopped writing prose, but continued to write poetry. His last collection of poems was published in 1901. In 1905 he was awarded the Order of Merit. George Meredith died on 18 May 1909.

From the guide to the Meredith, George, 1891-1901, (Senate House Library, University of London)

George Meredith was an innovative British author of the Victorian era. Born in Portsmouth, little is known of his youth, but he was educated at several schools in England and Germany before being articled to a London solicitor. Meredith had little interest in the law, but was introduced to London's literary society and began to write. He eventually developed a reputation as a major novelist and noted poet, as well as writing short fiction, and working as a journalist, editor, and publisher's reader. His reputation among other writers was notable, and his work influenced a generation of authors, including James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and E.M. Forster.
