A dramatic and compelling story of the great love of William Butler Yeats for Maud Gonne the woman he immortalised in his poetry.Set in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this romantic tale unfolds against a background of political unrest and tenant agitation in Ireland. The poet William Butler Yeats is a central figure in the Irish literary revival, while Maud Gonne, a political activist, is passionately involved in the struggle for Irish independence. But this is not a dissertation about Yeats work, nor is it about the history of the day or the political involvements of Maud Gonne. It is a love story, illustrated with some of the most poignant poems ever written.
