Maud Gonne

"Maud Gonne," the fiery nationalist whom William Butler Yeats loved hopelessly and unendingly, is mentioned by Kevin Egan in Proteus as a "beautiful woman" who was involved with the French politician and journalist Lucien "Millevoye." In Lotus Eaters Bloom recalls how she opposed the free rein given to British troops to roam the streets of Dublin at night, seeking sex from prostitutes.
