It challenges the reader's sense of what is possible in a poem. It traces the history and highlights the potential of poetry. It focuses on the fundamental principles of poetic construction, such as: who is speaking? Who are they speaking to? And why does their speaking take this form? It considers both experimental and mainstream approaches to contemporary poetry. It consists of fourteen chapters, making it suitable for use over one semester.

MUDs are Multi-User Dimensions, online worlds created by language alone. Placing Irish poetry into the electronic age, this work explores the Internet and car culture, MUDs and moods. It creates a new kind of poetry from the online world's fissiparous language, elliptical, self-interrupting, and fizzing with invention.
