— 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.

— Appears in: Literature and the Aborigine in Australia 1770- 1975 1989; (p. 49-75)
This chapter looks at representations of Aboriginal Australians constructed by squatters in the early colonial period. Healy identifies Rolf Boldrewood (aka Thomas Alexander Browne) as the principal chronicler of squatter reflections of Aboriginal Australians. Focus is also given to the works of Rosa Campbell Praed.
