Poet, visual artist and translator Norma Cole is the author of many superb books of poetry, the latest of which is Spinoza in Her Youth , beautifully published by Richmond’s new Omnidawn Press. Robert Creeley has said, "she is a poet of consummate intelligence, a deft and compassionate company". Her much respected translation work includes Anne Portugal's Nude (Kelsey St. Press) and Danielle Collobert’s Journals.
