E-LITERATURE IN E-PUBLISHING, (ed. by Paola Carbone) Mimesis, Milano 2002
It is widely acknowledged that digital communication has deeply influenced the way art is made and transmitted. E-literature refers to both traditional, linear digitized literary texts and to "ergodic forms of writing", that is to say texts designed to be multilinear, multimedia, disparate, dynamic, interactive and/or interlinked.
This book considers the dynamics of electronic hypertextual writing from the double perspective of the artist and the critic. Cultural contexts and cognitive models as well as the creation of an alert academic audience are discussed together with the commitment of the "humanist" and the leading role of the publishing world.
This book contains essays by Bob Arellano, Paola Carbone, Shelley Jackson, Michael Joyce, Paolo Ferri, Patrizia Nerozzi Bellman, Massimo Riva, Susana Tosca Pajares, Tim Parks, and Leonardo Terzo.
