Annal: 1998 Yale Younger Poets Prize

Results of the Yale Younger Poets Prize in the year 1998.



Craig Arnold

Arnold plays on the idea of the shell as both the dazzling surface of the self and a hard case that wards off the assaults of the world. His poems narrate a dizzying array of 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.
