Real hypertext literature is as tricky to predict as it is to define. So
I'll simply give a few examples and hope that that suffices:
- Joyce's Afternoon
- Moulthrop's Victory Garden
- Imagine the multivocal nature of Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, but
digital. You can, for example, follow one character's train of thought as
far as you'd like, completely skipping over other characters. Or not. It's
- Imagine the subtle integration of images and text, in which images do
not simply support or accentuate the written word, but complement and perhaps
- Sound, too. Imagine ambient music that weaves itself throught the text,
changing and adapting itself to the text (and/or images) it accompanies.
Something like my upcoming web.
