Born in 1870 into Ireland’s landed gentry, Eva Gore-Booth devoted her adult life to fighting for the rights of the disenfranchised and the emancipation of the poor. She became a trade union founder and a passionate campaigner for women’s suffrage and for gender equality in an age still ruled by patriarchal values. Throughout her career she conveyed her ideas through poetry, publishing nineteen volumes, collected here for the first time, complete with a fascinating essay on Gore-Booth’s poetic life.
