ISBN: 0972348719

Wave Books. 2004

Much anticipated in poetry circles, this debut poetry collection by the well-known younger poet and critic rises to the occasion, at once bold and tender, experimental and clear. Jean Valentine writes: "New consciousnesses shine here in delicate, angry, ecstatic, funny, heartbroken play: the forked lightning of true poetry."

My Kafka Century
ISBN: 0976569221

Action Books. 2005

Poetry. Jewish Studies. In her second book, MY KAFKA CENTURY, Arielle Greenberg raises the gothic, European ghosts sealed under the glib facade of contemporary American culture. Trying on the sometimes hilarious, sometimes discomforting guises of Jewish folk humor, pop eroticism and kiddie epistemology, she reveals and revels in the cracks and contradictions of a bristling, brainy Babel. "Greenberg remembers that what poetry does best is produce complex meaning in the never-ending possibilities language affords"--Michael R. Allen.
