Editorial Reviews


Christopher Buckley likes to keep a foot in both the physical and spiritual worlds. . . . His speakers respond to their own questioning with luxurious stanzas brimming with the heavy cream of imagery rather than fat-free metaphysics. Some poets like only celestial music, others the grit of streets, but Buckley engages winningly with both. --David Kirby, San Francisco Chronicle

A smart, wide-referencing writer of musical sentences, he's a believer in mind and science, but he consistently insists on cherishing an almost deifying beauty . . . --Kevin Clark, The Georgia Review

Christopher Buckley was raised in Santa Barbara, California, and currently teaches in the Creative Writing Department at the University of California Riverside. He is the author of sixteen books of poetry, most recently Modern History: Prose Poems 1987-2007 and Flying Backbone: The Georgia O'Keeffe Poems. His poetry has appeared widely in periodicals including The New Yorker, Antaeus, American Poetry Review, Ploughshares, The Georgia Review, The Southern Review, The Sewanee Review, TriQuartlerly, Prairie Schooner, and POETRY.
