Overview

In the introduction to this 1919 collection of Irish poems, the author describes her patriotic awakening, and love for her Irish roots. After gathering thirty-seven folk poems from the people of Ireland—a stonecutter, a basket maker, a man on the street, among others—Lady Gregory translated and collected them here.
