Irish writer, poet, and painter George William Russell (1867–1935) infused his work with spirituality. Russell was also politically active, writing about Irish identity and independence under the pseudonym AE. Beginning in 1905, Russell edited The Irish Homestead and continued this role when the paper merged with The Irish Statesman in 1923. Russell's writing covered a wide span of themes in the arts, philosophy, and politics.
