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.
