The poems in Arja Salafranca's collection Beyond Touch reveal an interest in the observed world and the experience of others. Although the collection can be read as a unified poetic voice in the 'confessional mode', the focus is not so much on an estranged individual experience, as on a reaching towards an understanding of others and a continual questioning and readjustment of the speaker's own perceptions and sense of distance.
