Abstract (in English): 

In this chapter, in The Bloomsbury Handbook of Electronic Literature, Luciana Gattass aim to approximate German literary theorist Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht's aesthetics of "presence" to the recent phenomenon of electronic literature, which Gattass describes as the digitally "born" literary objects meant to be experienced within networked and programmable media environments. 

Pull Quotes: 

[...] I propose we draw a connection between the tendency toward immersion occuring presently in Silicon Valley and a movement within the humanities to recover the body and materiality as sources of theoretical engagement, as evidenced by theories of affect, presence, and embodiment.
