Description

I n a half century on the national stage, William F. Buckley, Jr., achieved unique stature as a polemicist and the undisputed godfather of modern American conservatism. He knew everybody, skewered everybody who needed skewering, and in general lived life on a scale that inspired countless young conservatives across that half-century. Among all of his distinctions, Buckley was a master of that most elusive of art forms: the eulogy. Buckley drew on his unrivaled gifts to mourn, celebrate, or seek eternal mercy for the men and women who touched his life and the nation. These remembrances reect Buckley's singular voice, with its elegant touch and mordant humor, and lend to the lives departed a nal tribute consistent with their own careers, lives, and accomplishments. A Torch Kept Lit will collect the very best, those remembering the most consequential lives, those who loomed largest in the conservative movement, the most accomplished in the literary world, the most mysterious, and those most dear to Buckley.
