The Structure of Joseph Furphy's Such is Life, John Barnes , single work criticism
Barnes argues that Furphy constructed Such is Life to give an impression of the "seeming shapelessness and uncertain consequence of everyday life". Drawing on evidence from a typescript of the novel and Furphy's correspondence, Barnes demonstrates how Furphy deliberately imposed the narrative structure and hidden plots.

On a Tapestryi"'And in whose eyes I drown,' the Lady said.", Rosemary Dobson , single work poetry (p. 61)
The Craftsmanship of Lawson Henry Lawson as Craftsman, A. A. Phillips , single work criticism
Phillips rejects the view that Lawson's prose lacks technical virtuosity. Phillips argues that Lawson's aim was not to tell a story, but to evoke the quality of Australian living. Lawson's spare narratives, effective understatement and ironic twists within a symmetrical structure produce stories of substantial artistic value.
(p. 63-72)

Prayer for the Death of the Grey Birdi"There is bad blood in the chapels of the flesh,", Lynne Strahan , single work poetry (p. 73)
Steele Rudd and Henry Lawson, A. D. Hope , single work criticism
Hope examines the stories of Lawson and Rudd and argues that Lawson's are the more universal because Rudd's fiction requires a greater understanding of his time and place. But Rudd was able to create universal comic characters, despite the presence of too much slap-stick comedy. Hope concludes that both writers deserve critical attention and should be accepted into the tradition of comic literature exemplified by Mark Twain.
