book as an aesthetic object has lasting value. But are we kidding ourselves?
With a readership increasingly reliant on the computer, and a new generation
of students who have never known a time when the Internet was more than a

cyberspace? Is this good or bad? With more than a hundred fonts, point
sizes, untold programs and graphic elements, how will the function of the computer
affect the actual forms of poetry?
