The Right to Be Forgotten



By Kim Stafford

This book gathers poems written while traveling in Spain, France, Scotland, England, Wales, and Ireland. The poems witness for the way a traveler may be pilgrim, seeking local encounters of epiphany and blessing. “The right to be forgotten” was a court case where a group of plaintiffs wished to disappear from their internet past, and dwell in their local places now. The poems in this book explore what it can be like to be a resident of a moment in a place of welcome.
