Works about this Work

Homely Stories and the Ideological Work of 'Terra Nullius' Margaret Allen , 2003 single work criticism
— Appears in: Journal of Australian Studies , no. 79 2003; (p. 105-115, notes 234-236)
'This paper explores the work of Matilda Evans, a prolific writer of domestic novels, and argues for her books' highly political status as works that were engaged in narrating the "nation" in nineteenth-century South Australia and creating a foundational narrative for the young settler community. The body of literature Evans produced represents a homely, familiar South Australian landscape and its ideal colonists. In these texts, Indigenous peoples are almost totally absent. Within Evans's texts, belonging is evaluated according to the criteria of middle-class domesticity. By these benchmarks, the presence of Idigenous people in South Australia is contested and their rights of belonging are denied. Evans's words, far from being trivial, are seen as performing the ideological work of "Terra Nullius".' (105)

— Appears in: Embroidering the Framework 1984; (p. 21-31)
The author compares Maud Jeanne Franc's writing with that of contemporary writers in Britain and the United States, highlighting their inter-related cultural heritage, but shows that Franc was responding also to a number of forces and issues specific to the Australian and South Australian colonial environment.
