George Robert Gissing

Gissing, George Robert (1857–1903), English novelist. His most famous novel, New Grub Street (1891), depicts much of the hardship he himself experienced as an aspiring writer. Influenced by Dickens, he is noted for his starkly realistic studies of late Victorian lower- and middle-class life, as in The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft (1903).
