Violet Russell

[?]-1932; Wife of George Russell (AE); author of Heroes of the Dawn, ill. by Beatrice Elvery, which ‘retells in her own fashion stories of the ancient gods and saints and barbaric heroes of Irish legendary history, and the romance, the wonder, and fancy and quaint extravagances of these tales of the world’s youth lose nothing of their freshness, fantasy, pathos, or their ancient fascination in the loving skill with which she relates them […]. (Bookman; cited in publisher’s notice appended to St. John Ervine, Mrs. Martin’s Man, 1915 pop. edn.).
