    1. Craig Arnold was a professor at the University of Wyoming He cited Ani DiFranco as a muse and claimed he was 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.

    2. Well, in my humble (and unbiased, of course) opinion, Craig is one of the great poets of his/our generation, and likely beyond. He is a master craftsman, but more importantly these poems, while restrained by form, are deeply felt, are storytelling in the grand tradition. Craig never shies away from the major subjects of poetry - love, loss, the quest to understand the self in relation to others and to the world, the reason we feel compelled to utter anything, ever. This is not spangled fad poetr [...]

    3. Shells, by Teddy Wayne is about, how a boy named Michael and his Aunt Esther bond together by a hermit crab. I think the theme of the book Shells is, having relationships is important. Like the relationship between Michael to Aunt Esther, Aunt Esther to Michael, and the hermit to Michael and Aunt Esther. First, Michael to Aunt Esther’s relationship together. Michael’s parents just died and it’s very hard for him to take in. When he gets home he hopes and waits thinking his parents will com [...]

    4. Shells was the 1999 Yale Series of Younger Poets selected by W.S. Merwin. Indeed, there is a lot of imagery of shells, mollusks, lobster, with some recipes even. But in the aftermath of his tragic loss hiking, reading his book, what I find interesting is the many references to death. He has two poems specifically dedicated to young men who died: Ian Curtis, 1956-1980, who hanged himself, & Jeff Buckley, 1966-1997, who died in tragic accident drown in the Mississippi. He has poems to friends [...]

    5. The poems in this collection are well paced and on the "formalist" end of things, often using rhyme in sophisticated ways, and organized around the idea of shells: the shells of animals, the shells we wear to protect ourselves, etc. But the subject matter is frequently both surprising and intriguing. I still don't know what the poem "The Extravagance of Zoos" is about, but it is wonderful nonetheless in its imagery and language and rhythm. I also enjoyed Arnold's wickedly funny poem that is an e [...]

    6. LIVING WITH IT by Craig Arnold (1967-2009)It is nothing that they didor could have helped, two peoplefalling in love. Not evenbecause they shared a toothbrush,once. It is their germsgetting acquaintedFor weeksthey take turns being sick--one makes the tea, the otheranswers the phone. Slowly,they can't tell betterfrom worseThis goes onuntil one dies.Note: The original poem above does NOT include spacing; if anyone knows how to properly indent ("indent text" formatting tips at no good), please le [...]

    7. If there is such a thing as sexy contemporary poetry, Arnold's collection surely exemplifies it. His wit is powerful yet understated. His poems fascinate and seduce casually and, at times, maybe even flippantly.I found his internal rhyme and meter to be precise, his subjects (such as food, sex and cruelty) vital, his voice strong and rhythm downright lyrical. A collection for everyone exploring the boundaries of poetry without abandoning all convention. Take it with you to the beach, on the subw [...]

    8. The late Craig Arnold unfortunately only had published two slim volumes of poetry before his passing at 41 in 2009. Shells is his debut volume, the 1999 winner of the Yale series of younger poets prize. While not quite as perfect as his 2008 book, Made Flesh, which remains one of my favorite books of poetry, Shells is still quite good and worth checking out.

    9. My signed copy of this book reads, "Dear Ashley: Bad Catholic boys are much more fun than good Mormon boys." And that should tell you a little about Arnold's style. He's a friend of a friend, and such a talent. His Jeff Buckley poem is worth the purchase alone. Be aware, though, some strong/potentially offensive imagery/diction for some of those good Mormon boys.

    10. Shells is very conhesive, from start to finish, and although I want more wonderful poems I curb my appetite and appreciate the collection. The organization of the book is precise and expertly achieved. The poems that stood out the most for me were, "For a cook", "Saffron", "Ubi sunt?", "Why I skip my high school renunions", and "Transparent". I feel lucky to have been exposed to this poet.

    11. memories.i did a review of this book in college, hosted craig at a reading on campus, and maybe we got drunk and made out. i have no idea.

    12. I would have given this four stars for Arnold's way of looking at things, the curve of his attention. But I got too caught up on the line here, which often feels rather flat.

    13. I'll be studying this for his use of dialogue in poetry -- full conversations, with line breaks, that carry you from page to page. Clearly a very talented writer, gone much too soon.
