Also reprinted is an essay in which Buckley not only speaks to his process, but to comment from art critics over the years. Buckley explains that he was compelled by The vitality she found in everything-from bones in the desert to skyscrapers in Manhattan-the way the work suggests a practical cast, one that cherishes the earth and praises the strength of the human spirit as it endures here. ~~~~~ He has an exquisite ear for language... no concept is over-stated-it''s all marvelously fresh. - Library Journal ~~~~~ What the soul learns is that, from the perspective of the universe... the local might be the entirety of the earth.... (His) poems inscribe a desire for what does shine, for the redemptive. - Lisa M. Steinman, Michigan Quarterly Review. ~~~~~ ... absolutely reverent and absolutely fearless poetic assumptions... they are never mere documents or ''interpretations.'' They are inspired trances: eerie, faceted, gem-clear and like O''Keeffe, fired by such fixed and radiant perceptions they leave the reader stunned. - Carol Muske `````````` About Christopher Buckley ~~~~~~~~~~Christopher Buckley''s most recent books are AND THE SEA, (2006), and SKY (2004) from The Sheep Meadow Press.
