His sister, Christina, was also a renowned poet and just as scholarly as he. Christina found some modicum of success as an illustrator, but as a woman, most of her artwork, according to Lorraine Kooistra, was “for private pleasure rather than public…

There were people standing in front of us, behind us, and beside us because of the way the line was setup. Most people stayed in their own groups, huddled together for warmth.
