About this title

Synopsis:

"In this insightful and readable volume, Landow explores the relationship between contemporary literary and social theory and the latest advances in computer software."--Voice Literary Supplement.

"A useful book for understanding the effect technology is having on scholarship."--Semiotic Review of Books.

"Landow['s]... presentation is measured, experiential, lucid, moderate, and sensible. He merely points out that the concept `hypertext' lets us test some concepts associated with critical theory, and gracefully shows how the technology is contributing to reconfigurations of text, author, narrative, and (literary) education."--Post Modern Culture.

"Good news for teachers who are not too sensitive about their intellectual authority... Bad news for print culture."--Times Literary Supplement

Review:

"Good news for teachers who are not too sensitive about their intellectual authority... Bad news for print culture." -- Times Literary Supplement



"A bold and enthusiastic prediction of the impact of hypertext on literature and pedagogy... Landow's book is a good place to begin." -- Rocky Mountain Review of Language and Literature
