Eva Gore-Booth's obituary appeared in many prestigious newspapers in Ireland, England and America, reflecting the global significance of her political and literary work. In Ireland, she was recalled mainly for her literature. The Irish Times lamented that 'by her death Ireland loses a charming poet and essayist, whose work held no mean place in the Anglo-Irish literary movement of the new century'. The New York Times highlighted the fact that Gore-Booth was the 'sister of Countess Markievicz, Irish Republican'. While Eva's loss was felt in the literary world and among social reformers, her loss was felt most profoundly by those in her personal life. According to Gore-Booth's wishes, Roper received her entire estate and was appointed as literary executor. In that capacity, Esther Roper continued to publish Gore-Booth's literature. Poems of Eva Gore-Booth: Complete Edition, constitutes a wonderful memorial to Gore-Booth's life and literature.
