A Companion to Digital Literary Studies provides the most thorough single-source exploration to date of the many intersections between literary studies and computation. These intersections are documented and explored by leading scholars, theorists, and practitioners and together they record the history, survey the present, and speculate on the future of this emerging and multi-faceted discipline. Articles are grouped into sections which gather and engage the most important scholarship from the field on topics ranging from scholarly editing and literary criticism, to interactive fiction, multimedia, immersive environments, and beyond.The Companion opens with period-specific surveys and engagements of how computational methods have been applied to a number of areas of literary studies, followed by an overview of the field's major theoretical and methodological perspectives related to new modes of writing and reading enabled by electronic text. Further sections investigate the new genres of electronic literature, including hypertext literature, installations, gaming, and weblogs, while providing an overview of formatting concerns and best practices for digital preservation. This volume is an accessible and practical resource for those who want to understand, use, or create digital literature.

A Companion to Digital Literary Studies offers an extensive examination of how new technologies are changing the nature of literary studies. Through a series of specially commissioned articles by leading scholars, theorists, and writers creating born-digital literature, the text provides a thorough overview of the intersections between computing, literary studies, and new media. It takes a highly interdisciplinary perspective in its examination of scholarly editing and literary criticism, interactive fiction and gaming, multimedia and immersive environments, and born digital literature.

This Companion is the only comprehensive collection of seminal works available to meet the needs of this growing area of inquiry. It is a must-read for anyone wishing to understand, use, or create digital literature.
