"Argues with McAuley's approach to plastic arts ... questioning what is seen as an attack on present-day painting and sculpture through McAuley's insistence that these arts are designed soley for sensual pleasure, not for use or meaning as was the function of traditional art." (Robert Ross, Australian Literary Criticism, 1945-1988, p. 252.)
