Abstract

Travel for Agoraphobics is a collection of fifty poems accompanied by an introduction. Using both traditional and experimental forms, the poems are in conversation with each other about loneliness and isolation in an age of technologies designed to bring us closer together. The introduction addresses the influence of other writers and the process of writing and revising.
