Kate O'Brien's picture

Kate O'Brien

Ireland (1897 - 1974)

Kate O'Brien lived in London and also in Spain, where she developed a passionate and enduring love of Spanish literature and culture. One of this century's greatest novelists, her fiction broke new ground in Irish writing by focusing on the prosperous Catholic bourgeoisie and by giving central importance to women's struggle for selfhood in a rigidly sex-stereotyped society.
