Comments on Mr. Buckle and his passing?

Several of his reviews stick in my mind - I remember he said that watching Fonteyn's face as Odette was like making "a journey of the soul". That was one of his serious moments. To be as entertaining as he was, and also as observant, imaginative and well-informed, is a very rare thing.

Buckle was the first critic I read that had the kind of enthusiasm I felt for the ballet, and i read him rather the same way I read Thomas Mann or listened to Tchaikovsky -- it was a pleasure I would not want to have to defend, for I might incriminate myself, the agreements go SO deep.
"Ballet must be beautiful!!"
