Moira has the complexity of both a mystery and a morality tale. It is ripe with poetic stratagems. Norma Cole has invented a liquid space where figures enter passageways (sections) of “discovery rather than defining.” — Barbara Guest
Praise for Moira
To recover the telling, the human, we must unwind the tale, unbind the tale, the present seems to say. And to recover meaning, we must resist its simulacra, cajolings and screens. We must allow the voice—the work—its plurality, its silences, its infinite, its pleated body. Such, in part, is the project of recovery and discovery in Norma Cole’s Moira. With striking formal and emotional range, its sequences call toward things and the ideas in motion in them.
