POETESS: ANNE STANHOPE GORE

TO DATE ACCREDITED AS THE FIRST IDENTIFIABLE AUSTRALIAN WOMAN POET

POEMS PUBLISHED IN THE AUSTRALIAN

8TH SEPT AND 15 DECEMBER 1825

Her early death precluded any chance of her writing career developing beyond these two publication dates.

Her birth could well be in the 1813-1815 period in Sydney and her death appears in 1836 , 3 years after the death of her mother. A S G wrote from her father’s home on the North Shore of Sydney where according to ADB on her father’s site, she lay unburied along with her parents for some years under palings. A strange interpretation but there you are !
