James Stephens (1880-1950) was a Dublin-born writer whose work was a celebration of Irish identity. As a poet and novelist, he produced original stories and vibrant retellings of classic myths. His most notable titles include The Charwoman's Daughter, The Crock of Gold and The Insurrection in Dublin a bold account of 1916's Easter Rebellion.
