    Abstract:
    This article gives a brief biographical sketch of Iseult Gonne, daughter of Irish activist Maud Gonne and wife of the Irish author Francis Stuart. It also describes and analyzes her relationship with the poet W.B. Yeats, who once proposed to her, and discusses her role in several of Yeats's poems, including "To a Child Dancing in the Wind." The article reprints one of Iseult Gonne's own poems, which was published in 1918.
