This article provides an overview of the special issue. It argues that attention to literary forms plays an important role when it comes to issues of social justice and aging. Forms enable and disable what can be said; they shape the way we receive and process information; they conjure affects that can supplement or contradict the content that they contain. By better understanding the forms of aging that work to construct and sometimes dismantle agism we can identify points of intervention to ensure a more equitable distribution of care in our societies.
