Works about this Work

Aspects of Kendall's Pastoral Muse Carmel Gaffney , 1992 single work criticism
— Appears in: Henry Kendall : The Muse of Australia 1992; (p. 150-164)
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.
