Abstract (in English): 

An argument for a multimedia narratology that accounts for both relationships between media within a digital work and how work positions itself within a larger media multiplicty. Punday develops his argument in part through a reading of the multimedia aesthetic in Talan Memmott's Lexia to Perplexia.

Pull Quotes: 

Because of my desire to retain the history that cognitive theory can leave behind, I would like to resurrect a term that passed out of vogue some time ago, multimedia, which emphasizes existing cultural models of the various channels through which we encounter information.

[T]he tendency to associate or differentiate one medium from another is never unmotivated.
