Abstract (in English): 

This article was written by Philippe Bootz for the 10th anniversary of the launch of the magazine Alire, one of the longest-standing multimedia journals in Europe and the publishing platform of the LAIRE group, specialising in researching the creative possibilities of new computer technologies. Alire has become, over the years, a landmark in any discussion of digital poetry, as it has enabled us to know numerous works of poetry written and designed to be read on a computer. The position Bootz takes in the article is that digital literature is literature, too. The Alire experience thus shows us that we can conceive a literature that is closely linked to the characteristics of the computer.
