Excavating the Borders of Literary Anglo-Saxonism in Nineteenth-Century Britain and Australia Chris Jones , Louise D'Arcens , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Representations , Winter vol. 121 no. 1 2013; (p. 85-106)

'Comparing nineteenth-century British and Australian Anglo-Saxonist literature enables a “decentered” exploration of Anglo-Saxonism’s intersections with national, imperial, and colonial discourses, challenging assumptions that this discourse was an uncritical vehicle of English nationalism and British manifest destiny. Far from reflecting a stable imperial center, evocations of “ancient Englishness” in British literature were polyvalent and self-contesting, while in Australian literature they offered a response to colonization and emerging knowledge about the vast age of Indigenous Australian cultures.' (Authors abstract)

— Appears in: Hontanar , December no. 93 2006; (p. 4-5)
y separately published work icon That Shining Band : A Study of Australian Colonial Verse Tradition Michael Ackland , St Lucia : University of Queensland Press , 1994 Z463297 1994 single work criticism Rejecting the apparently common perception that Australia's national identity was first expressed in verse by the balladists of the 1890s, Ackland explores the thematic developments of early colonial poets, both men and women, whose place in Australia's literary history he believes to have been largely undervalued.
A Martial Code : Meditation and Action in the Verse of Adam Lindsay Gordon Michael Ackland , 1993 single work criticism biography autobiography
— Appears in: Westerly , Winter vol. 38 no. 2 1993; (p. 53-65)
Ackland finds "intellectual resonances" in Gordon's poetry that produce an "unsuspected degree of conceptual unity". Ackland argues that "Gordon's poetry reveals not a disjunction between darkly meditative and healthy action poetry, but an ongoing and unavailing endeavour to find new grounds for individual affirmation".
