A Balance between Sense and Sensibility, Frank Moorhouse , single work criticism

Frank Moorhouse traces Vernon Knowles's life through papers held in the National Archives of Australia and the Australian National Library. Moorhouse charts the course of Knowles's literary career, his funding by the Commonwealth Literary Fund (CLF) and his eventual destitution. Moorhouse, noting the obscurity into which Knowles has fallen, concludes that Knowles's writing does not, in his opinion, warrant re-publication nor do his manuscripts require publication.

Moorhouse, however, commends the CLF as the real 'hero' of the arts funding story. The CLF ' exhibited the very best of attitudes in arts patronage: they affirmed the imagination at its most unconventional; they trusted the judgement of the author as to his needs ... and at the same time tried to truly assess and meet his needs; they were not dissuaded from their decision by the scandal of difference'.

Love, Actually, Marion Halligan , single work prose
Marion Halligan asserts that it is 'the ordinary business' of the novelist 'to decide which material will form the basis of the stories she has in mind. Mine are essentially domestic, they are about life and death, love, marriage, birth, temptation, all the everyday things, and the everyday is a rich source of images'.
