Praise for The Moon with The Sun in Her Eye
In The Moon with the Sun in Her Eye, Nana Lampton boldly explores the tension between the feminine moon and the masculine sun. Using the dual lenses of metaphor and image, she asks all of us, Why can’t we see more clearly? and then shows us how. Through the moony imagination, we can apprehend the invisible and feel compassion beyond our usual limits. 
Nana Lampton’s poems respond to our local, global, and cosmic situations. Hers is an inclusive aesthetic, one that places what it is to be a human alive in our time among the plants, animals, rivers, mountains, continents, and cultures of our world. 
With a mythic embodiment who might have leapt from the brain of William Blake, Nana’s Potain Sieblung gives us a female figure both powerful and vulnerable, penetrant in her honest insights, bold enough to go where she needs to go, and brave enough to sweep us stunned gawkers along in her wake. Thanks be, for Nana Lampton’s book of poems!
