Cardozo's book falls short of contemporary biographical practice but it is warm, illuminating and true to the woman it portrays, rescuing her from the often misogynistic viewpoint the Irish nationalist circles that best remember Maud as 'Mad Gone'. Cardozo pays attention to her feminist credentials and brings to life her emotional life, again rescuing it from the Willie Yeats version, which so differs from her own. I found it useful and enjoyable.
