'When people who are less fortunate come to the door, are there imperatives for those born by luck into a safe place? Or is the world simply too small today for hospitality to e extended to those hoping to escape persecution and the imminent threat to life? Are there too many humans in the world for the lucky few to act hospitable? What role do those humans we call poets have when such questions of humanity are to the fore?' (Introduction 25)
