Irish dramatist Lady Gregory, also known as Isabella Augusta, played an important part in reviving interest in Irish literature at the beginning of the 20th century. Also, together with W.B. Yeats, she was co-founded of the Abbey Theatre in 1904 and gave Ireland its own national theatre.
Lady Gregory is mainly remembered for her work behind the Irish Literary Revival. She wrote numerous short works, plays and produced a number of books of retellings of stories taken from Irish mythology. “The Kiltartan Poetry Book” is a collection of translated poetry, has contained insight into her views on folk literature and the Irish language. The book contains a variety of well-known and obscure Irish poems, among them seven of Raftery’s poems including his “Lament for O’Daly” and “His Answer When Some Stranger Asked Who He Was”.
We are glad to present you the literary work of the writer, which was described by George Bernard Shaw as "the greatest living Irish Women". Enjoy the reading!
