'Throughout her writing, Wright has engaged with both the social and environmental consequences of unmitigated exploitation of the natural world. She has also sought to articulate attitudes to the environment and Australia's indigenous peoples. Along with writers such as Les Murray, John Kinsella, and Gary Snyder, her work is amenable to a reading inspired by the social ecology of Murray Bookchin. ... The applicability of his theories to Wright's poetry and prose suggests one of the many ways in which social ecology may be utilized by literary ecologists.'
