About this item
Electronic Literature is rapidly emerging as an exciting field which is changing the way that contemporary literature is both produced and read. This accessible introduction guides readers through the history of the field and introduces the major themes and issues within Elit such as genres, materialities, global elit and archiving. The approach of the book encourages readers to reach their own conclusions through:
- Questions at the beginning of a chapter
- A variety of case studies to illustrate points
- Provisional approaches to answer questions
- Summary of discussion
In this way the book provides essential information but it engages readers by offering research pathways rather than definitive answers. The chapter conclusions also make the book useful for more advanced readers as well as those seeking an introduction.
