REINES, Ariana
The Cow

The first book of poetry by Ariana Reines won the 2006 Alberta Prize. "Anarchic, graphic, and literal, Ariana Reines's first book demonstrates the potential of poetry to cannibalize. She is a cow, grazing realms of experience explored by John Weiners, Hélène Cixous, Bernadette Mayer, Bruce Andrews, Alfred Döblin, and reality television. Beyond brilliant, THE COW is a manifesto of the paradoxical girl-state in which disappearance beckons through presence, and you are completely alert to a point where you can no longer stand it."—Chris Kraus
