REVIEWS

 

Reviews of Buchananís books (poetry, novels, essays, as well as other miscellaneous works) are available below. Buchananís plays are dealt with elsewhere. Links to these reviews are also available from other pages (Bibliography, Poetry, Fiction, Essays) but I thought it might be useful to list them all here. I doubt whether anyone will read them all in sequence, however, it does give a good indication of how Buchananís reputation suffered over the years. There is also a final section of notices of some of Buchananís contributions to magazines, which includes a brief entry on his own journal, Light.
