And as a side note: It got me thinking can such a work be considered as an example of e-literature? And what actually is e-literature? (This has been a concern of mine for about a year now as a collateral damage of my MA.) So – e-literature has something to do with electricity (mostly realised on the screen). It was popular to use this term (?) to make a difference from the print culture. But as today everything has to do something with the electricity (and even books are made digitally all the way to being print down) this just doesn’t seem to be describing anything specific. And literature seems to be just the same if spoken, written down or Twittered. (Yes, we might use those media differently – but I don’t see any specific internal quality that would be distinguishing for an e-literature – what ever that might be that is.)
So I got down to idea that e-literature (as a term) is at its best a fuzzy – and more ideological than theoretical – term describing a state of widely diverse literature affairs in a period of time (over by now to that). Still – I would be very interested to hear some opponents to this – a bit pessimistic, I admit – idea. Any thoughts on that?
