My Craft or Sullen Art : Poetry and Songwriting Joe Dolce , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Meanjin , vol. 73 no. 1 2014; (p. 116-127)
'Among many contemporary poets and writers there is a reverence approaching myopia towards certain iconic singer-songwriters from the early 19, most notable Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, which prevents clear-eyed critical analysis of their careers and current work. There is also confusion as to whether these singer-songwriters should be considered poets, lyricists, poet-lyricists, singer-poets or a dozen other hyphenated nouns.' (Author's introduction 116)

Taking the example of late twentieth century South African history, Bennett considers "the twin but competing demands of 'truth' and 'reconciliation'" and the outworking of corporate, cultural memory. An analysis is made of recent literary history publications from Canada, New Zealand and Australia and comments expressed on the decisions of policy-makers and literary history writers to "give priority to certain narratives over others".

The Trouble with Australian Literature Ken Gelder , 1998 single work criticism
— Appears in: AQ : Journal of Contemporary Analysis , November-December vol. 70 no. 6 1998; (p. 8-12)
In mapping the development of Australian literary studies as an object of scholarly endeavour, Gelder poses the questions 'why are we still producing a form of literary studies which seems to sanction' the narrow perspective of an Australian national literature and 'when will literary nationalism be supplanted by, at the very least, something akin to literary regionalism'? Gelder refers particularly to The Oxford Literary History of Australia (1998), but comments also on other works that have attempted to map the national literature.
