This collection of letters between Maud Gonne (Irish activist, actress, and long-time love of W. B. Yeats) and John Quinn (Irish-American lawyer, art collector, and patron) deals with art, literature, Irish politics, and the horrific conflicts of the early twentieth century.
Their letters are filled with details about the Irish fight for freedom, and how it affected Yeats, Pound, Joyce, and other friends; about Gonne's never-ending battle to establish a school feeding program for the starving children of Ireland; and about the alarming changes in the political and social world of their time.

This collection of letters between Maud Gonne (1866-1953), Irish political activist and long-standing beloved of W.B. Yeats, and John Quinn (1870-1924), Irish American lawyer and patron of the arts, spans the years 1906-21. The two met through Irish writers whose works Quinn was acquiring; Quinn admired Gonne's activism. Their friendship was cemented when Quinn helped Gonne end her marriage to John MacBride. As Gonne's granddaughter notes in the foreword, the letters were written between Gonne's "early spectacular career" and her return to Ireland from France in late middle age. Topics covered include Irish politics, World War I, and the current literary scene as embodied in such writers as Yeats, Pound, and Joyce. Editors Janis Londraville (On Poetry, Painting, and Politics: Letters of May Morris and John Quinn) and Richard Londraville (English, emeritus, SUNY at Potsdam) make the context clear in introductions to each chapter and copious notes containing explanations of concepts alluded to in the letters.
