Works about this Work

Mary Fullerton: Pioneering and Feminism Joy W. Hooton , 1993 single work criticism biography
— Appears in: The Time to Write : Australian Women Writers 1890-1930 1993; (p. 38-53)

Hooton explores Fullerton's life and works, demonstrating the influence of the bush and its pioneers on Fullerton's thought. Hooton argues that the notion of solidarity that Fullerton developed from her experience in the bush differed from the masculine 1890s ideals of the Bulletin school because of her inclusion of women. This broader notion of solidarity easily extends into the ideas of the first wave of Australian feminism, indicating the importance of Mary Fullerton's writing to an understanding of Australian culture in the first decades of the twentieth century.

Gardening in the Never-Never : Women Writers and the Bush Helen Thomson , 1993 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Time to Write : Australian Women Writers 1890-1930 1993; (p. 19-37)
Thomson describes a feminised response to the Australian landscape, an expression of the Arcadian possibilities of the bush, as distinct from the masculine 'realist' response. She also notes women writers' sense of sisterhood with Aboriginal women, expressed through a shared benign relationship with the natural world.
