Sentimental Jonah's Heart of Stone, C. A. Cranston , single work criticism
Cranston examines Jonah in the context of its exhibition of pagan myth and fairytale. Cranston argues that Jonah represents the primal nature of man in his pan-like appearance and character, concluding that "Jonah is the embodiment of the typical qualities of the outcast, an outlaw in exile, pursuing his life of non-conformity" by distorting mythologies and fairytales and bending Christian ideology to personify anti-Christian ideals.

Homages and Invocations : The Early Poetry of Robert Adamson, Martin Duwell , single work criticism (p. 229-238)
Ripping Yarns, Ideology, and Robbery Under Arms, Graeme Turner , single work criticism
Turner offers a reading of Robbery Under Arms as an adventure story and assesses its merit in terms of that genre. The portrayal of characters and presentation of action is typical of adventure stories, but Turner concludes that these conventions limit the presentation of a more complex psychological novel.
