Praise for Moby Dick Made Me Do It

To the wounded text that is Moby Dick Felicia Zamora adds her own woundedness, the necessary poetic urge not only to say “I am I am” in echo and affirmation, but also “to open the opened” which keeps the wound a wound. Such poems offer us their vulnerable thinking by refusing to make an end of their crisis. Instead, we here find poems in which life is its own whaling voyage, filled with wonder and difficulty, seeking not destination, but realization and experience — that open ocean in which wonder and difficulty almost merge, almost become one.

— Dan Beachy-Quick
