Cage of Lit Glass, Paperback / softback Book

Cage of Lit Glass Paperback / softback


The debut poetry collection of Charles Kell, Cage of Lit Glass engages themes of death, incarceration, and family through a range of physical, emotional, and philosophical spaces.

In startling images of beauty and violence, Kell creates a haunting world that mirrors our individual and cultural fears.

Boldly engaging with the absurdity, strain, and horrors of life, Kell's poems expand upon the lineage of writers such as Kafka, Beckett, and Rimbaud. Cage of Lit Glass follows multiple individuals and points of view, all haunted by various states of unease and struggle that follow them like specters as they navigate their world.

Kell's poems form blurred narratives and playful experiments from our attempts to build lives from despair.

A tense and insightful collection, these works will follow the reader long after the book is finished.
