In modern scholarship, Larsen is recognized as one of the central figures in the African-American , feminist and modernist canons , a reputation that is based on her two novels ( Passing and Quicksand ) and some short stories .  As of 2007, Passing is the subject of more than 200 scholarly articles and more than 50 dissertations,   which offer a range of critical interpretations. It has been hailed as a text helping to "create a modernist psychological interiority ... challenging marriage and middle-class domesticity, complexly interrogating gender, race, and sexual identity, and for redeploying traditional tropes —such as that of the tragic mulatta—with a contemporary and critical twist."  However, literary critic Cheryl Wall summarizes the critical response to Passing as less favorable than to Larsen's first novel Quicksand .  On one hand, the significance of sexual jealousy in the story has been seen to detract from the topic of racial passing; conversely, even if racial passing is accurately treated in the novel, it is considered a historically specific practice and so Passing appears dated and trivial.
