Product Overview

Poetry. A girl wakes up to find out just how completely her lover has possessed her. A couple realizes they''ve been trapped inside an ancient myth. A traveler glances out through a train window and catches the dim reflection of another world. This is the world of MADE FLESH, the long-awaited second book by Craig Arnold, and a new mythology of what it means to be in the body. Marrying narrative precision to lyric ecstasy, the archaic to the avant-garde, these poems celebrate the fragility of our very selves and "the joy of self-forgetting," the acts of surrender that loves asks of us. Fierce, exuberant, and erotic, they invite the reader to share a rare and startling vision: how, if we would only permit ourselves to be drawn out of our mental privacies, we might admit the beauty of being for a moment in the world, and with each other. Arnold teaches at the University of Wyoming in Laramie.
