Blind Spot (2006)

Backwaters Press   ISBN: 0-9785782-1-X

“Angry at how her grandmother erased the past, ‘traded our circle for a place in line,’ Susan Eisenberg, in these plain-spoken, not-for-the-faint-of-heart poems, resists the historical amnesia and denial American culture propagates. Funny, harrowing, loving, fierce, political, personal - she aims for the blind spot, for what we can’t see; connects the’60s to the present, and, in the act of honest remembering, reminds us who we are.”

- Eleanor Wilner, author of The Girl with Bees in Her Hair

“With Eisenberg’s signature precision, humor, emotional intensity and, above all, perspective, these poems never shy away from the complex nature of good and evil as experienced by actual human beings.”

Pioneering: Poems from the

Construction Site (1998)

ILR/Cornell  ISBN 0-8014-8526-6

“Susan Eisenberg introduces us to a world and lives too little known through poetry. This is a powerful book filled with honest, unpretentious, fearless, and beautiful poems.” 

- Thomas Lux, author of Split Horizon

“Susan Eisenberg is the best kind of political poet - tough, plain-spoken, but alive to the human complexities that can derail the expected moral. She has learned her trade from real masters - and her pacing and alertness are unerring.”

It’s a Good Thing I’m Not Macho (1984)

Whetstone Press  ISBN 0-931165-00-8

“One can find here the symbolic resonances that bring one back to reread a book of literature many times. . . . These cleanly crafted poems are also about fear and the courage which overcomes it, about the journey of any fearful, determined and courageous spirit into any unknown.

- Denise Levertov
