Abstract (in English): 

Initiated on March 15, 1997, ebr's electropoetics "thread" is devoted to discussions and debates about digital poetics and writing in electronic environments. Most, but not all, of the articles published in ebr about electronic literature and digital literary art appear in this thread. The first editor of electropoetics was Joel Felix, who edited a special issue by that title. David Ciccoricco (2002-2005) and Lori Emerson later served as electropoetics thread editors.

Pull Quotes: 

For many who are committed to working in electronic environments, an electronic "review" might better be named a "retrospective," a mere scholarly commemoration of a phenomenon that is passing. There's a technological subtext to the declining prestige of authors and literary canons. To bring that subtext to the surface will be part of ebr's agenda.
