Commentary Susanna was the daughter of John Gore of Clonrone, Co. Clare. She was married firstly to John King, son of Sir Wiliam King, and secondly to Richard Smyth of Ballynatray Co. Waterford, the 4th son of Sir Percy Smyth and great nephew of Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork. Nearly all the poetry and prose texts are original, hitherto unknown and unpublished. Autographs of female literature are extremely rare before 1750 in most countries. In Ireland no other female poets are known in her period, 1680-1740.
