Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Jewish Studies. Rachel Zolf's first book of poetry, published in 1999, explores post-Holocaust Jewish identity and lesbian desire through a complex, multilayered textuality, seamlessly blending the erotic with the linguistic. As R.M. Vaughan noted in a 2000 review, "Zolf writes about the impossible, about events that defy poetry, in the only way possible—by making the unspeakable the silent, omitted undergrammar of her poems."
