Steele Rudd as Failed Artist, Van Ikin , single work criticism
Ikin argues that Rudd was not a mere bush yarner, but a writer with some artistic merit as seen in his careful construction of paragraphs and the combination of the 'hyperbole of everyday speech and the images that express an individual perception'. In effect, Rudd spins yarns which are precisely constructed and alien to the rough, loosely constructed form from which they derive. But, in conclusion, Ikin acknowledges that Rudd's creative skills were not up to the examination of psychology and ethics that his stories frequently touched.

The Literary Reputation of Charles Harpur, Vijay C. Mishra , single work criticism
Contrary to the opinion of many 20C critics, Mishra finds that the criticism of Harpur during these years labelled him as a poet of "ideas" rather than a "songster" and second-rate descriptive writer. While reception remained mixed, some reviewers were aware of the editorial intervention in Harpur's collected works of 1883.
