Excerpt from An Introduction to the Study of Australian Literature
Gordon, but because, in my opinion, he has left in letters for all generations to possess the remarkable revelation of a man's soul.
That, you will say, is surely what, in a measure, all poets have done. Not so. That is what they may have endeavoured to do; but few men have so piteously and agonisingly suffered for us in song as this Australian-born singer of our own gullies and bell-birds and wild mountain streams. The salt of his own heart-tears still stains the pages of our literature, albeit he has been dead for many years. It is for this reason, then, I have chosen him from among the noble little band of singers in the days when what literature we have was in its brave and tuneful making.
I might have taken Charles Harpur, a more careful workman than Kendall, a man who laid the foundations of Australian song both deeply and strongly. In many ways Harpur is a finer poet than Kendall. In his best poem, The Creek of the Four Graves, 'he has used a strong, full blank verse. The pictures crowd upon one another in quick and radiant succession.
