Charms Against Lightning - James Arthur

In his debut, emerging poet James Arthur handles multi-layered images of the everyday that bloom into remarkable vastness, poems reminiscent of walking rhythms and rich with internal rhyme. Alive with stirring accounts of travel, intimate moments of solitude, and encounters with the ineffable, this book sings in striking language and sound, of personae and place, winding somewhere beyond selfhood.

For Charms Against Lightning, James Arthur

“An entrenched strangeness exists in Arthur’s work, derived not from linguistic hijinks but from common observations ... his tone is casual and confident, the effect slightly off-frame or out of focus, yet constantly arresting.” —The Believer

“This is one of those poems—we get them once in a while—where, you know, we don’t know who the poet is, and you see this poem, and you go ‘Who is this? How did they do that?’ This poem seems to me to have just come seamlessly from someone’s mind. It’s very intense.” —Don Share, discussing “The Land of Nod” in Poetry magazine’s podcast
