The novel recounts the story of self-absorbed Sir Willoughby Patterne and his attempts at marriage; jilted by his first bride-to-be, he vacillates between the sentimental Laetitia Dale and the strong-willed Clara Middleton. More importantly, the novel follows Clara’s attempts to escape from her engagement to Sir Willoughby, who desires women to serve as a mirror for him and consequently cannot understand why she would not want to marry him. Thus, The Egoist dramatizes the difficulty contingent upon being a woman in Victorian society, when women’s bodies and minds are trafficked between fathers and husbands to cement male bonds.

In an afterword by Angus Wilson, The Egoist was called “the turning point in George Meredith’s career.” Wilson saw Meredith as “the first great art novelist”; his afterword interprets the book as an adaptation of a stage comedy, an achievement he arrogates to few English authors, who, he suggests, present only “farce or satire.” He compliments Meredith most when he is detached from his characters, as “it is then that our laughter is most thoughtful.” Wilson is most taken by “the absolute truth of much of the dialogue,” such as how “the way Sir Willoughby continues to speak through the answers of other characters, returning to notice their replies only when his own vein of thought is exhausted” is a “wonderful observation of human speech.”
