"Who Is She?" : The Image of Woman in the Novels of Joseph Furphy, Julian Croft , 1983 single work criticism
Croft acknowledges two levels of narration in Such is Life: realism and romance. The sexual hypocrisies of the realistic strand are counterpointed by the romantic strand, especially in the story of Molly Cooper. Croft sees Molly Cooper as the hero of Such is Life. While Tom Collins presents the realistic mode, the ideal world in which Molly Cooper is able to be loved despite her disfigurement offers a synthesis witheld from others.

Catherine Helen Spence: Pragmatic Utopian, Helen Thomson , 1983 single work criticism
