Harwood's Monster: "Walter Lehmann" and the Embodied Subject Colin Dray , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 27 no. 1 2013; (p. 61-68)

'Dray talks about Gwen Hardwood's poetry. To say that the poet Gwen Hardwood was a prolific writer early in her career would be a vast understatement; in truth she was several. Employing a number of artfully crafted personas, all with his or her own distinct style and agenda, Harwood became so deft at employing these masks that each existed long enough to be established as a new voice in Australian poetry before the revelation of their true identity dissolved them–occasionally with some ironic complication–back into her greater canon.'
