Overview and metadata sections

Irish writer Oliver St. John Gogarty's (1878-1957) works were influenced by his career as a physician and his involvement in politics. Gogarty developed friendships with other members of the Irish Literary Renaissance, such as James Joyce and W. B. Yeats. Gogarty's poems were lauded by colleagues such as Yeats and George Russell (A.E.). Gogarty also published works under pseudonyms. Known as a satirist, Gogarty's works sometimes inspired controversy.
