Contains a biography of Vincent Buckley, an Australian born poet of Irish ancestral origins, and a review of his literary work. McLaren first met Vincent Buckley when Buckley was a young tutor and McLaren an undergraduate. Buckley had succeeded in having Robert Fitzgerald's Moonlight Acre included in the course as a token representation of Australian literature. He was a diminutive figure standing in front of the gloomy English lecture theatre, and his lecturing style lacked the rhetorical inflation of his colleagues like Ian Maxwell and Keith Macartney, but once he started talking McLaren knew he was listening to someone who cared about his subject.
