Helen Pinkerton (1927 – 2017) from Taken in Faith (Athens, OH: Swallow Press/Ohio University Press, 2002). Over seven decades, Helen Pinkerton has published a small number of poems admirable for their austere intellectual beauty, such as the newly collected Metaphysical Song. The poet Annie Finch remembered that Tim had put her in touch with Helen years ago when she was organizing her anthology, A Formal Feeling Comes. First Principle Being’s pure act, Infinite cause Of finite fact, Essential being, Beyond our sight, Without which, nothing, Neither love nor light.
Taken in Faith 8). From the perspective of maturity, and from that of an intellectual . From the perspective of maturity, and from that of an intellectual Catholicism to which we shall turn shortly, Pinkterton's poem takes her father for a symbol of concupiscence, of insatiable bodily appetite in a fallen world. Rather than accepting and "sticking with" what Wendell Berry has called the gift of good land, her father drove on and was killed in a mining accident when she was eleven years old (1938). Pinkerton's mother was of Catholic ancestry, and made some notional gestures of initiating Pinkerton into the Church, but these made little impression on the child (Pinkerton, "Personal Interview").

by George J. Dance Helen Pinkerton (born 1927) is an American poet, essayist, and academic. She has published 5 volumes of poetry, including her selected poems, Taken In Faith, in 2001. Her critical essays include studies of Edgar Bowers, Yvor Winters, Janet Lewis, John Finley, and Catherine Davis
In 1967, Yvor Winters wrote of Helen Pinkerton, “she is a master of poetic style and of her material. No poet in English writes with more authority.” Unfortunately, in 1967 mastery of poetic style was not, by and large, considered a virtue, and Pinkerton's finely crafted poems were neglected in favor of more improvisational and flashier talents. Though her work won the attention and praise of serious readers, who tracked her poems as they appeared in such journals as The Paris Review, The Sewanee Review, and The Southern Review, her verse has never been available in a trade book. Taken in Faith remedies that situation, bringing Pinkerton's remarkable poems to a general audience for the first time. Even her very earliest works embody a rare depth and seriousness. Primarily lyrical and devotional, they always touch on larger issues of human struggle and conduct. More recent poems, concerned in part with history, exhibit a stylistic as well as a thematic shift, moving away from the rhymed forms of her devotional works into a blank verse marked by a quiet flexibility and contemplative grace. Like Virginia Adair, another poet who waited long for proper recognition, Pinkerton speaks as a woman who has lived fully and observed acutely and who has set the life and observations down in memorable verse. Taken in Faith represents a half-century of her poetic efforts.
