 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.

 Falls the shadow by William Logan
Wright’s specialty is romantic vision (you suspect he’d see himself as a visionary, if he weren’t so modest and afflicted with doubt) —he finds the sublime in the unlikeliest places, and at his best makes you think such places are exactly where to look.
Wright is quick to invoke the “abyss,” to summon the “other world”—he settles for a beachcomber’s philosophizing with a swig of metaphysical sentiment.
Wright is one of our most talented poets; but he’s content to make bad jokes (“We come, we hang out, we disappear”—just what Caesar would have said, if he’d thought of it), to use poise and neon and glacier and Crayola as verbs (and insected as an adjective).

 The Case for Charles, by the Rev. Canon J. Robert Wright
Charles could have avoided martyrdom if he had agreed to give up his witness to the catholic faith and order that is an essential ingredient of classical Anglicanism, in particular if he had agreed to settle for a church without bishops.
My point is that the team representing the Episcopal Church stood for episcopacy then as did Charles in his day, made its witness for the same Gospel to which the doctrines of apostolic succession and historic episcopate are generally understood to attest.
Charles stood ready, as the Scripture says, always to give account to anyone who asks a reason for the hope that is within.

 Kumbaya Watch on The Nation on National Review Online
The desire for retribution, he says, has been revealed by Darwinian theory to be nothing more than an evolutionary adaptation, useful only insofar as it serves as a deterrent for future lawless acts.
Wright, anticipating criticism, also gets in some digs at "people who consider themselves Christians" yet push for retributive justice.
Having dumped 3,000 years of moral philosophy into a Darwinian dustbin, offering a facile gloss on the Christian tradition is just part of a day's work for Robert Wright, deep thinker.

 Bush's Anti-Logic Shield, Part 2 By Robert Wright
More pedantry: Lest readers impute liberal bias to this column, let me briefly critique the logic of someone who is not, to my knowledge, a conservative Republican—namely, the editor of this journal, Michael Kinsley.
I will wisely refrain from taking sides in this debate between two esteemed and influential colleagues (except to note that Mike is right and Charles is wrong), but I would like to scrutinize one sentence in Kinsley's column.

 Frank Lloyd Wright Bibliography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A volume of photographs, called 'the Sonderheft' (after the ongoing Wasmuth series on contemporary architecture, "Architecture of the Twentieth Century", of which it was a member) in Wright's letters, and sometimes called 'the little Wasmuth' by later commentators (as opposed to the large folios of the 'Wasmuth portfolio').
The other is the American edition (141 pages, 193 illustrations, ultimately 163 halftone pictures): it is a modifed version with extra pictures which Wright felt met his standards; it is confusingly titled "Frank Lloyd Wright: Ausgefuhrte Bauten" (the original German title, even though it is the American edition).
Two essays (R. Mallet-Stevens, "Frank Lloyd Wright and the New Architecture", and Erich Mendelsohn, "Frank Lloyd Wright") included in the original edition (and some later ones) are not in English (French and German respectively), but are provided in translation in the most recent edition [Gramercy, 1994].
