Publisher Description:
Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Women's Studies. Art. In a transposition of 5th-century St. Mary of Egypt's harlot-turned-desert-ascetic vita to a contemporary setting, MOIRA OF EDGES, MOIRA THE TART reimagines hermitry, penitence, and ardor through the figure of artist and lay philosopher Moira (sometimes Moina) Jones. Part-hagiography, part-künstlerroman in poetic form, MOIRA OF EDGES fractures into disclosing edge time: a limned threshold; a vibrating seam; an angular meditation on form, mind, god, sex, the metaphysics of time and perception.
