Gary Snyder writes that Lake of Heaven is "a extraordinary textual content of mythopoetic quality―with a Noh flavor―that provides a lot of the traditional lore of Japan and the lore of the spirit world." the tale turns into a parable for the bigger international, "in which all of our previous cultures and all of our outdated villages have gotten buried, sunken, and misplaced below the emerging waters of the dams of industrialization and globalization."

Zu viel… Herz, zu viel Herzensblut, weißt, wenn du singst?
