Works about this Work

y That Shining Band : A Study of Australian Colonial Verse Tradition Michael Ackland , St Lucia : University of Queensland Press , 1994 Z463297 1994 single work criticism Rejecting the apparently common perception that Australia's national identity was first expressed in verse by the balladists of the 1890s, Ackland explores the thematic developments of early colonial poets, both men and women, whose place in Australia's literary history he believes to have been largely undervalued.
Towards "The Shadow": Henry Kendall and the Mid-Century Crisis of Faith Michael Ackland , 1990 single work criticism
— Appears in: Westerly , September vol. 35 no. 3 1990; (p. 71-78) Henry Kendall : The Muse of Australia 1992; (p. 275-288)
Ackland explores Kendall's crisis of faith in relation to the verse narratives that illustrate his attempt to "supplement the truths of religion with those of poetry". Kendall uses myth and biblical figures to to express his existential dilemma in the late 1860s. But these poems were not included in Leaves from Australian Forests (1869) and remained concealed in newspaper archives. Because these poems are not discussed by Kendall's biographers understanding of Kendall's life and work is incomplete.
