James Fenton: On "Sojourn in the Whale"

She rebelled--she considered herself a pure Celt--with the Irish, writing "Sojourn in the Whale" after the Easter Rising, in which she prophesies the triumph of Irish nationalism and, in the same analogy, the casue of women.

From "Becoming Marianne Moore." New York Review of Book (April 24, 1997).
