The Shelf Life of Zora Cross
By Cathy Perkins

Australian poet and journalist Zora Cross caused a sensation in 1917 with her book Songs of Love and Life. Here was a young
woman, who looked like a Sunday school teacher, celebrating sexual passion in a provocative series of sonnets. She was
hailed as a genius, and many expected her to endure as a household name alongside Shakespeare and Rossetti. While Cross’s fame didn’t last, she kept writing through financial hardship, personal tragedies, and two world wars, producing a remarkable body of work.
