Works about this Work

Buckley's Places Peter Steele , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , Special Issue 2010;
'The motif of place is of central importance in Vincent Buckley's poetry and prose. His poem 'Ghosts, Places, Stories, Questions' is a key instance of this. There as elsewhere Buckley inflects the notion of place to encompass the heroic, the domestic, and the lyrical. In other writings he explores what it is for the body to be the self's place: for certain geographic locales to be sacred spaces or places: and for place to be the milieu in which others are encountered. Increasingly he conceives of the English language itself as the privileged place of his imagination.' (Source: http://www.nla.gov.au/openpublish/index.php/jasal/article/view/1442)
