The Textual Whole and its Vicissitudes in Digital and Ergodic Literature

Abstract (in English): 

The paper tries to figure out what happens to the notion of the textual whole (or the literary work) if it can appropriate and mix texts not yet published, cannot be read in its entirety, if only a few of its signifiers can or will be shared by all its readers,  there‚Äôs no clear termination point to its metamorphosis, and it sets conditions and constraints to its reading process ranging from temporal limitations to personal and personalized perspectives. Perhaps something has to change, but what exactly and how and why?
