Notes

  • Note that Kendall wrote two different poems with this title. This poem was written following the death of his young daughter Araluen, at Collingwood, in February 1870. It appears to have been first published almost a decade later, in the Sydney Mail, in September 1879.

Works about this Work

Henry Kendall: A Study in Imagery Donovan Clarke , 1957 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Quarterly , vol. 29 no. 4 1957; (p. 71-79) Australian Quarterly , vol. 30 no. 1 1958; (p. 89-98) Henry Kendall : The Muse of Australia 1992; (p. 1-24)
Clarke investigates Kendall's 'private myth' in Poems and Songs in which the poet seeks a maiden who has crossed a sea and entered a strange land. In later volumes, Kendall's expansion of this myth anticipates the symbolists because of his exploration of the "conception that human existence is an absence from the Divine, and Time a deprivation of Eternity". Clarke concludes that Kendall needs to be considered in terms other than "Australian" to appreciate the full impact of his poetry, his borrowings and anticipations.
