This chapter indicates the possibilities inherent in close examination of texts produced by Ella Young between 1900 and 1925. It focuses on how she absorbed and adapted contemporary discourses of gender, violence, and nation in her reworking of Irish myth and mysticism in order to generate a vision of a new Ireland that was both particular and powerful: particular, because it was characteristic of Young’s singular politics and spirituality; powerful, because it influenced Young’s immediate social milieu and, through notable friends such as Maud Gonne, found wider audiences.

Keywords:   Ella Young, Maud Gonne, Mysticism, Republicanism, Nationalism, Feminism
