Works about this Work

Shooting Mabel : Warrior Masculinity and Asian Invasion David Robert Walker , 2005 single work criticism
— Appears in: History Australia , vol. 2 no. 3 2005; (p. 89.1-89.11)
This article examines stories published around the beginning of the twentieth century depicting Asian invasions of Australia, and discovers consistent patterns of gendered and racialised assumptions setting Australian men, the bush and the future of the white race against Australian women, the city, and the asianisation of the nation. It argues that warrior Japan created a powerful case for an answering tradition of defiant, bush-based masculinity in Australia.
Madame Izan, Butterflies and the Incomprehensible Japanese Megumi Kato , 2000 single work criticism
— Appears in: Interactions : Essays on the Literature and Culture of the Asia-Pacific Region 2000; (p. 164-170)
Analyses Praed's novel and contrasts it with depictions of Japanese women in other western fiction which illustrate the 'Butterfly phenomenon' - the exoticisation of Japanese women and portrayals of the inevitable tragedy in relationships between them and western men. She finds Praed's novel remarkably free of romanticising and sees it as providing a fairly clear-eyed view of an actual country. 'Praed's perspective as a female, expatriate writer enabled her to approach Japan from a different perspective to that of male writers who had their own, masculine versions of Orientalism' (170).
