Summary

Summary

A dramatic and compelling story of the great love of W.B. Yeats for Maud Gonne, the woman he immortalised in his poems. Set in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this romantic tale unfolds against a backdrop of political unrest and tenant agitation in Ireland. The poet W.B. Yeats was a central figure in the Irish literary revival while Maud Gonne, a political activist, was passionately involved in the struggle for Irish independence.
