 Tucson Weekly: Wright Stuff (May 7 - May 13, 1998)
In part, this is due to the thoroughness of what he and poets like him brought to contemporary poetry in the 1970s: a sense of a poem that's as much sculpture or painting as story; and a sense of poem-making that's as exquisite as a blueprint by Taniguchi or a castle made of sand.
Wright remains the supreme architect of the line in contemporary poetry--a signature that is, in its own way, every bit as distinctive as a C.K. Williams or an Allen Ginsberg line.
Wright's poems became popular in the 1970s--along with the work of Larry Levis, David St. John and others--when the dark, brooding lyricism of the 1960s started to give way to a more "eloquent," almost lush poetic style.

 Edward Byrne: "Time and Again: Charles Wright's 'Negative Blue: Selected Later Poems'"
Wright has acknowledged her possession of a prominent place in his regard for the pantheon of past poets.
Wright recognizes the intangible nature of "time," which may give life like sunlight, but which just as relentlessly as light moves forward and inevitably passes us by, leaving behind only lengthening shadows: "Time and light are the same thing somewhere behind our backs" ("Meditation on Form and Measure").
Wright's explorations of abstractions such as "time" and "God" are persuasive because they are almost always wrapped between lines containing some of the finest imagery in contemporary poetry.

What Can You Bring Me Charles Wright is a funk pioneer, most famous for "Express Yourself," one of the one of the most popular breakbeats.
The faith was repaid with a string of hits that included "Do Your Thing" and "Spreading Honey." The groove on Wright's music was funky, yet so loose compared to the rigid James Brown formula that it went a long way towards defining California soul, and he set the standard for years to come.
Wright continued to make records under his own name for a short time before seemingly retiring from the music industry.
