Kirk's prose style is archaic and enchanting. His history of ideas, with his thesis of conservatism as a disposition rather than an ideology, is broad and forceful, not easily harnessed or contained by any existing political platforms around in 2008. Perhaps this is why he is still so revered. Especially enjoyable are his investigations of Burke, Newman, Maine, and Eliot.
