Ernest Boyd was the Irish-American critic and author of Contemporary Drama of Ireland (1917) and Ireland’s Literary Renaissance (1922). The Irish Academy of Letters, which he is here invited to join, was established by Yeats and G.B. Shaw in 1932 to represent Irish writers, and in particular to campaign against censorship in the Irish Free State.
AE, pseudonym of George William Russell, was the poet and mystic who was a leading figure in the Irish literary renaissance of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. AE met Yeats when he attended the Metropolitan School of Art in Dublin.
