‘A Peacock's Plume Among a Pile of Geese Feathers’ : Rosa Praed in the United States David Carter , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Queensland Review , June vol. 21 no. 1 2014; (p. 23-38)

'Rosa Praed has been claimed as ‘the first Australian-born novelist to achieve a significant international reputation.’ Almost certainly, she was the first Australian-born novelist to be published in the United States, although she was in England by the time her first novel appeared in America in 1883. Of Praed's forty-seven published works, twenty-five appeared in American editions in the three decades from 1883 to 1915, including twenty-four of her thirty-eight novels in more than forty separate editions. In the years either side of the century's turn, she was among the best known Australian writers in America, alongside Louis Becke and Rolf Boldrewood.' (Publication abstract)

— Appears in: Sold by the Millions : Australia's Bestsellers 2012; (p. 46-66)
'The analysis offered here is [...], a panoptic perspective of the tangled skeins of literary imagination and imitation, gender and genre requirements, editorial control, market considerations and the sheer economics of the international book trade that knotted Australian popular literature into the cultural and economic fabric of the British empire.' (47)
The Anglo-Australian : Between Colony and Metropolis in Rosa Praed's 'The Right Honourable' and Policy and Passion Julieanne Lamond , 2012 single work criticism

— Appears in: JASAL , no. 8 2008; (p. 31-44)
'This essay connects Praed's writing with late nineteenth and early twentieth century history with particular reference to the race issue. It explores races discourses -- Anglo-Saxonism, Celticism and Social Darwininism -- as thse appear in range of Praed's work and shows how scientific racism shaped Praed's reaction to Black Australia.'
Rosa Praed's Readership : In Search of an Australian Audience Julieanne Lamond , 2007 single work criticism

— Appears in: Margin , July-August no. 42 1997; (p. 2-12)

Fiction Adrian Mitchell , 1981 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Oxford History of Australian Literature 1981; (p. 27-172)
Rosa Praed's Colonial Heroines Michael Sharkey , 1981 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 10 no. 1 1981; (p. 48-56) Who Is She? 1983; (p. 26-36)
Sharkey argues that romance enabled Praed to present the colonial experience from a metropolitan point of view and intelligibly relate the circumstances of women in fronteir society to a European audience. This is achieved by employing a love-theory that declares, in Platonic terms, that for each person there is one who is their perfect match.
