Abstract

Contains a review of Vincent Buckley’s literary work. The poet Vincent Buckley gave his life to the search for this God immanent in the material world that had been sanctified through the incarnation of Christ. From an early age Buckley had known that his vocation was to be a poet, giving true names to the bright shapes of God's world. Through his work of naming the poet joins with the farmer, the cultivator, in bringing the harmony of God's world into existence. He finds this harmony in the world around him, but it is only there because people have worked to bring it into existence.
