Works about this Work

Inward Illumination : On Antigone Kefala Martin Duwell , 2014 single work column
— Appears in: Sydney Review of Books , June 2014;
The 'Journals' of Antigone Kefala Ivor Indyk , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antigone Kefala : A Writer's Journey 2013; (p. 221-233)

Ivor Indyk points to the shortcomings of recent criticism of Kefala's Sydney Journals and concludes: 'The consolation one offers oneself, when confronted with the patronising criticism of Kefala and, more frequently in the recent past, the outright exclusion of her writing, is to hope that time will bring the recognition she deserves.' (232)

'We, the Only Witness of Ourselves' : Re-Reading Antigone Kefala's Work Sneja Gunew , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antigone Kefala : A Writer's Journey 2013; (p. 210-220)

Sneja Gunew argues that Kefala's work has been marginalised by Australian literary criticism. 'The voice that manifest itself 40 years ago was categorized too quickly as "alien", a designation that has haunted Kefala's work thereafter. It is time to relocate her as a cultural pioneer who gave voice for over fifty years to those postwar immigrants who form an integral part of the fabric of Australian culture but whose contributions still require more systematic analysis and mapping, including a mapping in languages other than English.' (218)
