Electronic Literature, Chapter 5: Kinetic and Interactive Poetry

Research Collection
Collection curated by: 

This research collection includes references from the fifth chapter of Electronic Literature by Scott Rettberg (Polity, 2018), on Kinetic and Interactive Poetry. This chapter considers kinetic, multimedia, and interactive digital poetry. These forms of digital poetry have rich relationships with antecedent movements, particularly those that are concerned with the materiality of the text as image, with the granularity of language, and with the relationship between poetry, sound, and music. Animation and interactivity have consequences not only for our experience of the text as read, but also for our understanding of letters and words as manipulable material objects.
