  1. The body's boundaries
  2. The limits of life and death
  3. The limits of classical structures

In the collection Of mutability, boundaries are a central theme explored by Shapcott, illustrating life. The author crosses and defines, in different poems, the body's limits but also life and deaths ones and the limits of classical structure.

In the anthology, shapcott explores the body's boundaries to make the reader think. The idea of separation between the body and mind leads the reader to think about the possibility of living through a spirit and not only through a body, putting in doubt his identity. To illustrate this point, in Era, the voice says 'I said goodbye to the outside of my body'. The voice is only a soul, able to see the park and the city. It is still living. It is also the case in Myself Photographed, where Shapcott is adjacent to herself.
