Yeats, the Abbey Theatre, Censorship, and the Irish State (Oxford University Press, 2010 ), and The Poets of Rapallo: Late Modernist Writing in Mussolini’s Italy (forthcoming with Oxford University Press). With Matthew Campbell, she is editing the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of W.B. Yeats, and she is serving as a director of the Yeats International Summer School from 2018-2021.
