Description
This year's winner of the 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. Arnold plays on the idea of the shell as both the dazzling surface of the self & a hard case that protects the self against the assaults of the world. His poems narrate amatory & culinary misadventures. "Friendships based on food," Arnold writes, "are rarely stable"-this book is full of wildly unstable & bewitching friendships & other significant relations.
