AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Compared with Charles Harpur, Wright sees Kendall as a minor poet, pointing to his vast output of poor verse as a testament to this judgement. While Harpur consistently offers poetry of the highest quality, Kendall's frequent "occasional" verse does not support a similar reputation. Wright sees the poem, 'To a Mountain' as Kendall's strongest because it rises to the level of Wordsworth's pantheism with a form and feeling far superior to most of his work.


  • Includes reference to the influence of Charles Harpur on Henry Kendall.
