Maud Gonne was an Irish beauty. Yet she was caught up in politics and Yeats dis liked that very much. Yet Yeats was still madly in love with her, that's because Yeats never saw the true Maud Gonne. Maud got married other than to Yeats. She Married John MacBride who raped her step sister. MacBride was an Irish Nationalist. In 'Easter 1916' Yeats depicts MacBride as first a drunk and later as a hero in a sense. She also had two bastard daughter, Isult and Geroges, with Luciet, a french man.
