Overview

Lady Augusta Gregory (born Isabella Augusta Persse) (1852-1932), was an Irish dramatist and folklorist and writer of pamphlets, prose, memoirs, short stories and poems. With W. B. Yeats and others, she co-founded the Irish Literary Theatre and the Abbey Theatre, and wrote numerous works for both companies. She also produced a number of books of retellings of stories from Irish mythology. A trip to Inisheer in the Aran Islands in 1893 reawoke an interest in the Irish language and in the folklore of the area in which she lived. Publications included Arabi and His Household (1882), Over the River (1887), Cuchulain of Muirthemne (1902), Poets and Dreamers (1903), - which contains translations of Raftery, folk-tales and short plays - Gods and Fighting Men (1904) and A Book of Saints and Wonders (1906).
