This collection

has been published in response to a resurgence in Eric Greinke’s reputation & to numerous requests for an up-to-date collection of his poetry. The book contains 91 of his best poems including 23 poems previously unpublished in book form. Greinke’s poetry has been repeatedly compared by critics to that of the watershed French poet Arthur Rimbaud. Ranging from personal poems to surrealism, from deep imagism to abstract expressionism, & from tragic to comic, Greinke’s poetry is evocative, multi-layered, entertaining & engaging. His poetry is informed by the sister arts of painting & music, & his influences are wide-ranging, from the Beats to the New York School, from the French Surrealists to the American Immanentists.
