The Poems of Lesbia Harford

Edited by Drusilla Modjeska and Marjorie Pizer

ISBN: 9780207151576

DOI:

Publication date: 1-Jan-11

Lesbia Harford, poet and feminist, died in 1927 at the age of thirty-six. In her lifetime she published only a few poems, and the small selection published in 1941 in a book edited by Nettie Palmer has been out of print for many years. Yet her work has appeared consistently in anthologies of Australian poetry since the 1920s, and her preoccupations - feminism and its relationship to socialism, the situation of working women, the conflict between love and independence - reflect issues that are still central to Australian feminism and writing today.
