The Far Republics
Praise for The Far Republics
The Far Republics is expansive—an exuberant sensibility, but rueful. The public poems relish detail—all the brand names of the time are wovrn into a private living-as-it-goes account that also can’t forget what cold have been. You cn’t help but being swept into the flood. —Dennis Schmitz
Christopher Buckley’s gift for wide-ranging thinking meshes so gracefully with lovingly tender details; he feels like a companoin voice for all time—a Hikmet, a Neruda, yes. —Naomi Shihab Nye
