James Arthur’s first book of poems, Charms against Lightning, was published this past October by Copper Canyon Press, as a Lannan Literary Selection. Individual poems from Charms against Lightning have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, and The American Poetry Review. He has received the Amy Lowell Travelling Poetry Scholarship, a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, an Amy Clampitt Residency, and a Discovery/The Nation Prize. Copper Canyon's catalog describes Charms against Lightning, as "a poetic bildungsroman organized around the theme of awakening from a 'ghost world' in order to journey toward a definition of selfhood" and his poems as "romantic in spirit and contemporary in outlook ... rhythmical, elastic, and expressive."
