‘Beyond the Regions of Ordinary ‘Lady’ Verse’: Two Uncollected Poems by Louisa Anne Meredith

Abstract

Includes the texts of two poems by Meredith, signed ‘Louisa Anne Twamley’: ‘Impromptu Sonnets’ and ‘Epitaph on a Child’, both published in Tait’s Edinburgh Magazine in the 1830s. Judith Johnston writes: ‘While these poems cannot be considered as constituting a part of Meredith’s Australian corpus, and are of minor literary interest, nevertheless they already demonstrate those qualities which made her prose accounts of Australia so popular’ (192).
