Encyclopedia > Katherine Tynan

Katharine Tynan (January 23, 1861April 2, 1931) was a prolific Irish writer, known mainly for her novels and poetry. After her marriage in 1898 to the writer and barrister Henry Albert Hinkson (18651919) she usually wrote under the name Katharine Tynan Hinkson (or Tynan-Hinkson, Hinkson-Tynan). Of their three children, Pamela Hinkson (19001982) was also known as a writer.


Biography

Tynan was born into a large farming family in Clondalkin, County Dublin, and educated at a convent school in Drogheda. Her poems were first published in 1878. Tynan went on to play a major part in Dublin literary life, until she married and moved to England; later she lived at Claremorris, County Mayo when her husband was a magistrate there from 1914 to 1919.


For a while, Tynan was a close associate of W. B. Yeats (who may have proposed marriage and been rejected, around 1885). She is said to have written over 100 novels; there were some unsurprising comments about a lack of self-criticism in her output. Her Collected Poems appeared in 1930; she also wrote five autobiographical volumes.


Tynan died in Wimbledon, Surrey, in 1931.
