Maud Gonne is part of Irish history: her founding of the Daughters of Ireland, in 1900, was the key that effectively opened the door of twentieth-century politics to Irish women. Still remembered in Ireland for the inspiring public speeches she made on behalf of the suffering—those evicted from their homes in western Ireland, the Treason-Felony prisoners on the Isle of Wright, indeed all those whom she saw as victims of imperialism—she is known, too, within and outside Ireland as the woman W. B. Yeats loved and celebrated in his poems.

What People Are Saying

Frank Kinahan
Maud Gonne wasn't simply 'Yeats' beloved' - she wasn't 'simply' anything - but a remarkable person in her own right... She was also a... fierce patriot, a noteworthy actress, a good writer and, let it be said, an adventurous who entered grounds where few if any women had tried before her... The book is a wonderful read.
