'Our Literary Connexion' : Rosa Praed and George Bentley Chris Tiffin , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , October-November vol. 27 no. 3/4 2012; (p. 107-123)

This essay examines Rosa Praed's communication 'through letters, agreements, publisher's ledgers, and memoirs of her dealings with one of her early publishers, George Bentley of Richard Bentley & Son. These dealings were essentially professional and financial, but they were also educative and personal. George Bentley was one of several male mentors during Praed's first decade of publishing, but the only one who was both mentor and publisher....' (108)

Of Intemperance, Class and Gender in Colonial Queensland : A Working-Class Woman's Account of Alcohol Abuse Howard Le Couteur , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: History Australia , vol. 8 no. 3 2011; (p. 139-157)
'Writings by working-class women are relatively rare in the historical record, especially for mid-nineteenth century Australia. The letters of Julia Cross to her mother in Ely, Cambridgeshire, are notable not just for the mundane matters they discuss, but for the unique insight they give to a woman trapped by her class and gender because of her husband's intemperate habits. In a hard-headed decision, Julia resolved to stay with her husband and live out the consequences. The letters graphically describe her struggle to provide the necessities of life for her family and the stresses of physically protecting her children when her husband was drunk. Julia is revealed as a hard-working and resourceful woman who was committed to giving her children the best she could. The letters give us access to one working-class woman's perspective on men's drinking, one that was certainly not the narrow vision of the domestic sphere associated with the middle class. Julia found spaces outside the domestic sphere in which to work for her family's benefit.' (Author's abstract)
