— Appears in: TEXT : The Journal of the Australian Association of Writing Programs , October vol. 14 no. 2 2010;
'The good editor,' suggests Thomas McCormack in his Fiction Editor, the Novel and the Novelist, 'reads, and ... responds aptly' to the writer's work, 'where "aptly" means "as the ideal appropriate reader would".' McCormack develops an argument that encompasses the dual ideas of sensibility and craft as essential characteristics of the fiction editor. But at an historical juncture that has seen increasing interest in the publication of Indigenous writing, and when Indigenous writers themselves may envisage a multiplicity of readers (writing, for instance, for family and community, and to educate a wider white audience), who is the 'ideal appropriate reader' for the literary works of the current generation of Australian Indigenous writers? And what should the work of this 'good editor' be when engaging with the text of an Indigenous writer? This paper examines such questions using the work of Margaret McDonell and Jennifer Jones, among others, to explore ways in which non-Indigenous editors may apply aspects of McCormack's 'apt response' to the editing of Indigenous texts.'

Some Reflections on Myth, History and Memory As Determinants of Narrative Anne Holden Ronning , 2009 single work criticism
— Appears in: Coolabah , no. 3 2009; (p. 143-151)
'Against a background of theoretical reflections on myth, history and memory this paper will discuss their use as narrative strategies in texts from Australia and New Zealand. Scholars differ as to the meaning of myth whether it is formed by "contradictory narratives, which become involved in one another like threads of a tapestry, too intertwined to summarize adequately, and endless" as Bidermann and Scharfstein suggest (1993, 9); "a system of communication" (Barthes 1972); or the expression of "man's understanding of himself in the world in which he lives." (Bultman 1993). I shall argue that in Malouf`s Remembering Babylon the myth of Aborigine life is central to an understanding of Gemmy, and memory gives a false almost mythical picture of life in the old country, a situation found in many postcolonial texts from settler countries. That myth is not "which raises some interesting questions about the use of myth.' Source: Anne Holden Rønning.

Islands C A Cranston , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Littoral Zone : Australian Contexts and Their Writers 2007; (p. 219-260)
This chapter investigates the impact of literary tropes on island topography. The survey approach of island literature is abandoned in favour of ecocritical praxis, examining instead the literature of selected temperate islands (with populations varying from 2 to 20,000). Cattle farming, ideological disjunction, and mortality are explored in two settler autobiographies set in 'paradise' (Three Hummock Island); 'descent with modification' is traced in the text and the farming practices (sealing, Soldier Settlement pastoral, and salvage) in a work of fiction based in 'Eden' (King Island); and in the final work (indigenous autobiography and myth set on North Stradbroke Island), the politics of the 'land ethic' and land rights confront a sea country pastoral. (from The Littoral Zone)

Jones examines in detail the editing of Stradbroke Dreamtime, the changes made from the original text and how this could be interpreted.
Oodgeroo and Her Editor : The Production of Stradbroke Dreamtime Jennifer Jones , 2003 single work criticism
— Appears in: Journal of Australian Studies , no. 76 2003; (p. 47-[56], notes 232-233)
Oodgeroo's Stradbroke Dreamtime was the first autobiographical narrative by an Aboriginal woman to gain a mainstream publisher, but, as Jones points out, the text was almost completely ignored by the literary establishment. It achieved good sales when marketed as a children's book. However, this sales success was founded upon Oodgeroo's acceptance of pragmatic compromise in the editorial preparation of the text. The paper argues that the published version is manifestly different form the manuscript in its ideological underpinning and political intentions, and that Oodgeroo's original representation of Aboriginality was occluded by an act of 'editorial double mimesis' during the production process.
