Works about this Work

'Altogether Better-Bred Looking' : Race and Romance in the Australian Novels of Rosa Praed Len Platt , 2008 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.'
Shrouded Histories : Outlaw and Lawmaker, Republican Politics and Women's Interests Kay Ferres , 2003 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 21 no. 1 2003; (p. 32-42)
This essay reads the novel of expatriate colonial writer Rosa Praed, Outlaw and Lawmaker (1893), as an intervention in the public debate about the Irish question and the marriage question which were vigorously discussed in the late 1880s in Britain, the United States and Australia. Although the novel belongs to the genre of colonial romance, Ferres argues that its author 'speaks from a range of different positions within these debates, and thus underlines the inherent difficulty of characterising women's interests' (32).

— 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.
