A new and highly visual  creative portrait of the one of the most innovative Irish language poets of her generation.  Widely regarded as a trail-blazer in the new wave of poets who came to the fore after World War II, she has led a long life and lived through interesting times as an Irish diplomat  and spouse of Conor Cruise O’Brien, himself a controversial figure in politics and literature.
