Read full description of the books:
This year’s winner of the 1998 Yale Series of Younger Poets competition is Craig Arnold’s Shells, which was acclaimed as “a gifted collection of daring writing” by the contest judge, the distinguished poet W. S. Merwin. The book is an intriguing set of variations on the theme of identity. Arnold plays on the idea of the shell as both the dazzling surface of the self and a hard case that protects the self against the assaults of the world. His poems narrate amatory and culinary misadventures. “Friendships based on food,” Arnold writes, “are rarely stable”—this book is full of wildly unstable and bewitching friendships and other significant relations.

Read information about the authorCraig Arnold was a professor at the University of Wyoming. He cited Ani DiFranco as a muse and claimed he was more interested in art made in moments of happiness than art made to be beautiful. On April 26, 2009 Craig Arnold went missing on the island of Kuchino-erabu. He was in Japan to work on a lyric book about volcanoes. May 8, 2009 a search and rescue team concluded he suffered a leg injury and fell to his death on a steep cliff. According to his partner of six years, Rebecca Lindenberg, "he did not wait or wonder or suffer."
His first collection, Shells won the Yale Younger Poets selection. His follow-up, Made Flesh was critically acclaimed.
