Wright was an astute critic of Australian poetry, and her essays on Australian poets in Preoccupations in Australian Poetry (1965) are a major contribution to Australian literary history. A further collection of literary essays and reviews, Because I Was Invited, was published in 1975. She gave an account of her family's history in Generations of Men (1959) and The Cry for the Dead (1981). Wright was a campaigner for Aboriginal land rights and an active conservationist, and her writing in these areas appear in We Call for a Treaty (1985), Born of the Conquerors (1991) and Going on Talking (1992).

A winner of many literary awards, Judith Wright received the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 1992. A biography, South of My Days, by Veronica Brady, was published by HarperCollins in 1998. She died in 2000.
