Works about this Work

Mary Fullerton: Finding Form for the Woman Soul Ann Vickery , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: Stressing the Modern : Cultural Politics in Australian Women's Poetry 2007; (p. 81-122)
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.
