For Katherine Hastings, "The mirror is a lake of longing. Her poems are told us by "a woman with a moon in her chest"; their surprising images embrace close observation, deeply dramatized love and losses, and have the power of crossing boundaries of spirit to reveal truths otherwise unseen. - Daniel Hoff man, U.S. Poet Laureate, 1973-74
