Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett, 18th Baron of Dunsany (24 July 1878 – 25 October 1957) was an Irish writer and dramatist, notable for his work, mostly in fantasy, published under the name Lord Dunsany.
More than eighty books of his work were published, and his oeuvre
includes many hundreds of published short stories, as well as successful
plays, novels and essays.
Born to one of the oldest titles in the Irish peerage, Dunsany lived much of his life at perhaps Ireland‘s longest-inhabited home, Dunsany Castle near Tara, worked with W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory,
received an honorary doctorate from Trinity College, was chess and
pistol-shooting champion of Ireland, and travelled and hunted
extensively. He died in Dublin after an attack of appendicitis.
