Abstract (in English): 

Today's innovative poets no longer express their dissenting voice on the printed page but in the experimental realm of contemporary media, where holograms, video projections, and even biotechnology form the basis of a new syntax. Celebrated poet and artist Eduardo Kac's Media Poetry is the first anthology to document this radically new form, which is taking language beyond the confines of verse and into the non-linear world of digital interactivity and hyperlinkage.

This unparalleled volume takes up all the exhilarating incarnations of media poetry, from real-time text generation and spatiotemporal discontinuities to immateriality and visual tempo, exploring the international group of revolutionary poets responsible for such innovations. By embracing the vast possibilities made available by new media, the artists featured in this anthology have become the poetic pioneers of the next millennium.
